    Re: Problem / Question

    The "Thanks for cooperation" box keeps popping up here and there. I was getting them several times a day...now I've only seen one in the past day or so while posting on a thread. An earlier poster suggested this might be some type of virus (??????).

    I just "x" it out when I see it; it claims to be from Microsoft.

    Hope this info helps.

    I don't think this breaks a rule I missed or something, and that it's an appropriate post in the appropriate place, but I'd rather get fussed at than be bothered by the possibility that somebody might need to see it:

    The free version of Malwarebytes is very good at helping you identify and deal with any programs, browser "helpers," etc that you didn't choose to install on your computer.

    If you know you have, or should acquire, anything like that and are having trouble removing it, the Geeks To Go forums have friendly, specially trained volunteer nerds who will hold your hand and help you through the process, and once your machine is cleaned, they'll help you make sure it stays that way - with free programs that are just as good and usually better than pay ones.

    Not at all, thanks for that helpful information.

    I am having the same problem today. "MySpace" is hijacking my Fort site time right in the middle of posting/PM'ing. (did it as I wrote this.). I can use the backspace button which saved what I wrote. I am also getting "Thanks for your cooperation" . . . OK you are welcome!

    Should I be running my security software for malware?

    Thanks.
