Hint: ignore the pop-ups and follow her tip!

Same song, second verse; always go to the source for updates/upgrades. You can never be sure where a link in an email/text message/popup will take you, never. With Flash, I used to also complain to the site's owner about using unsupported, malware-infested, insecure "technology". It's wasted time/bits. wallbash.gif They just don't care or get it. dntknw.gif

Yes, but we seem to get a lot of questions about the flash pop-up, and then about how to remove all the adware that is installed. I'm hoping this is helpful for those who have a question BEFORE they click the pop-up. Maybe I'll pin this thread later next week.

Good luck! I'm still trying to get people to use BCC! And they are old enough to know what real carbon paper is! wallbash.gif laughhard.gif
