As I woke up this morning, I had plans of completing all my blogging chores early. So, I dropped my regular Entrecards, then began going about my 100 Adgitize clicks. Then, I was going to write a long planned AskTheBlogster entry.
Just to mix things up, I decided to start the Adgitize clicking around 100 of the Leaderboard. As usual, things were going smoothly until I reached 90 clicks!
Then, browser windows & pop up screens took over my computer. I couldn't close anything, so I rebooted.
But the malware was still there! For the past 8 hours, I have been battling this vicious & unwanted enemy.
I finally got enough control of my machine to write this post, and will begin another important Viral Scan that will take hours.
I usually open 6 Agitize sites at a time & begin clicking on them. So, I don't know if the malicious site was one that was on the Leaderboard or one that has purchased a monthly ad.
(Perhaps even, the responsible site doesn't even know its infected).
This is really a pain in the rear, and makes one wonder if the $0.20 - $1.00 earned daily is really worth the effort.
Anyway, thanks to my recent commenters, but I won't get back to you until I clean this mess up.
And, if anyone else has a problem, please share it with all of us!
