photobucket problem?

sandra_fergusonJanuary 28, 2009

I know lots of us use photobucket to store and send photographs, and I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced the same thing I have? The last 2 times I visited I immediately got the ANTIVIRUS 2009 screen.....I didn't fall for the rather scary warning about the virus now on my computer and "click here" to scan your computer....etc(It seems this is a "rogue anti-spyware program that uses false spyware results to lure you to purchase its full version.") However, what bothers me is that the only 2 times I've received this were while I was on the photobucket site. Could this be only a coincidence, or have any of your experienced it while on photobucket?

(In case you received it and DID click on their site, here are the instructions to get rid of it...our daughter ended up having to go to her computer 'guy' to get it off her computer)

Weird--I used Photobucket several times yesterday (wednesday) and never had the problems you experienced.

VERY strange, indeed. I must admit I'm loath to visit photobucket again, for I can't imagine it was just coincidence that the only 2 times I've gotten that durn antivirus junk was when I was there. I guess, though, I'll have to try it again....glad to hear you didn't have the problem and hope I won't, again, either.
