    Last week I clicked on a link from here to that fucked up messageboard arguewithanything (not the real name) and immediately my internet security program notified me that it blocked about 10 trojans.

    Ever since then approximately every 20 minutes I'd get the same notification, no matter that I hadn't been back to that website since.

    I finally decided to block arguewithanything from loading any images to my browser and that seems to have done the trick...I've gotten no notifications for over three hours now.

    :confused:

    I didn't have a problem like that when I posted there.
    I did have a problem with some racist guy following me around calling me a "****** lover" though. :)

    No, I'm asking if what I described is possible. Are images from a site you once visited capable of acting this way?

    You have stopped the pop-up by blocking the site. However it sounds like a virus is now on your harddrive and your virus scan probably wont pick it up.

    Do a full scan though if you haven't already (maybe I should read down a few posts and make sure i'm not repeating advice)

    After the full scan report back.

    It scans every night and doesn't find anything.

    That sounds a whole lot like the 2009XP Antivirus virus. I hope not, the sucker is a bitch, you think you've blocked it and each time you reboot it's back even stronger than before. Very few virus cleaning programs can get rid of it and those that do cost as much as $50.
