    It's typical...that the digital rights of recording and film companies on the INTERNET seems to be well organised, while we..the end user..still have to contend with browser hijacks, damage to our computers through viruses and other damaging applications, that try to install themselves on our computers, often without our permission.

    One I have had a lot of trouble with recently is ErrorSafe..I think I have cracked it now..but not without hours of searching for the right tools and scanning my computer... Who should I send the bill to?

    Try sending one to Microsoft, Bill Gates has so much money he might pay it just for fun.

    How did you get rid of it?
    I get one of their pop-ups each and every time I access the board with IE. I haven't found anything so I'm wondering which part of my computer I've forgotten to check.

    I use MS Windows Defender, a free download. It protects against spyware etc.

    I get them, about every 1 in 10 times i go to the home page my Firefox browser reshapes from it's maximized position to looking maximized but not really being so. It opens a new tab and i get a gray javascript pop up.
