    Just to let you know I had a Trojan blocked and deleted while logging on to USMB yesterday. Clean it up.

    Just take it off and throw it away. Try again with a different brand.

    I've never seen a peep or even a hint of anything at all from adverts.

    Which filter are you subscribed to?
