Adult Friend Finder Ads Everywhere?

  1. Just starting today, most of the websites that my wife and I visit on a daily basis (including this one) have graphic ads for Adult Friend Finder, all of which are showing nude women. These are common websites (People.com, this site, google, prosportsdaily.com, etc.) so I'm thinking that it's something on this computer that's leading to it. None of these occurrences are "pop-up" windows, they're just showing the ad right in the space on the website (which usually just shows advertisements at random).

    My 4 year old uses this laptop for her Sesame Street website games and stuff, and I don't want to chance her being exposed to any of this stuff.

    Has anyone heard of anything like this? I'm attaching 3 logs - not sure if I need to, but last time I had a problem, I did so, so I'm going for it again.

    Thanks!
    Paul

    There is a Tracking cookie for this site:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Karen\Cookies\karen@adultfriendfinder[1].txt

    Let's get rid of the Tracking Cookies, block them in the future and restrict the site:
    1. Did you check the line in SAS to remove what it found?
    2. Reset Cookies:
    Internet Explorer: Internet Options (through Tools or Control Panel) Privacy tab> Advanced button> CHECK 'override automatic Cookie handling'> CHECK 'accept first party Cookies'> CHECK 'Block third party Cookies'> CHECK 'allow per session Cookies'> Apply> OK.
    3. Put the site in the Restricted Zone:
    Open Internet Options> Security tab> Restricted Zone> Sites> type this in:
    *.adultfriendfinder
    Add

    IF you get a message that it is already in another zone, go to the Trusted Zone> Sites> remove it from there, then put it in restricted Zone.

    Might be a good time to do a disc cleanup to get rid of the temporary internet files, including History and cookies.

    THANKS for the response. I'm going to look into all of this now, and will let you know once I'm done.

    Ok, did all the stuff - Adobe wouldn't let me download 9.1 - said I had Error 1402 and that it couldn't open a key (I have the error note if you need it), so I did the FoxIt instead.

    I'm attaching the HJT log.

    Let me know how it looks.

    THANKS!

    Okay, look good. Has the adultfinder problem been resolved? Were you able to put it in the Restricted Sites?

    You still have Adobe Reader v7 installed. Just so you know how bloated it was, all of these processes were running for it. All can be checked for HijackThis to remove and Adobe Reader v7 can be uninstalled.
