I've been having a lot of trouble for a long time with spyware/adware called "Midaddle." What this piece of crap does is when you click on certain links, you'll get taken to an advertisement before the page you want to (kind of like commercials while you browse). Except even when the advertisement is "done," I don't get taken to the site I want to. Basically, this happens to me everytime I click a link to the forums (and to any topics on the forums). There's ways to get through this, but it's way too tedious and annoying to have to do it over and over again. I've tried deleting it many times (thanks to http://www.doxdesk.com , great site), even going through my registry to unroot it, but somehow it seems to be worming it's way back.
So that's why I haven't been here as much.
