@Greenlander-what browser are you using? I find adblock for firefox to work well.

Idiot morons make these adds with there spare time. Try this- Ads by TinyWallet - how to remove?

I hope it works out for you.

Use ninite to reinstall the essential applications, everything else you'll have to do manually.

Reinstalling your OS is not a difficult or scary process, I recommend people do it every year. It keeps your computer running like new.


^That's a can of worms... the laptop I am currently using was bought nearly four years ago and has technically never been "reinstalled". The installation of Windows 7 was actually copied (by using GParted) to the SSD I bought and the Windows 8 installation it now runs was an "upgrade" of the windows 7 it originally came with. There are no problems, and the 8.1 upgrade fixed an occasional BSOD issue I had with 8.0 when resuming from standby. It's still as good as new in most respects.

You shouldn't need to rebuild every year, if you are due to problems then your usage habits need to be rectified. I work in IT, so I understand I'm the exception to the rule as common sense appears to be in short supply around computers.

With that said The Greenlander can most probably get rid of his problem by using HiJackThis to weed out the entries and then HitmanPro (free 30 day trial) or Combofix to blast away the remaining remnants.

Malware isn't a good thing to have just sitting on an OS, I would strongly advise against ignoring it.

I've reinstalled Windows every year or two, since I bought my laptop in 2011.

I don't need to, but I do anyway. I install lots of programs and CAD extensions that only get used once or twice, and I never use them again. It takes less than half an hour to restore my laptop from an image, which is much faster than going through my installed applications and extensions and picking out the ones I don't use anymore.

I recommend it to others for the same reason is because there's so much junk installed on their computer that is running at startup that it has no RAM for anything else, easiest way to fix that is with a reset.
I know that it's easy enough to disable applications running on startup, but there's usually a lot of other issues (i.e. browser toolbars) that can be resolved with a fresh start.

You would certainly need a big external drive for a system image. Lucky I have a 320gb external drive that I use for a system image, once a month over night.

I sync all my files to dropbox (minus a few important design files). The system image is not that big since it only contains the OS and essential programs that can't be installed with ninite.

Default Re: TinyWallet ads on LPF?

these ads are not from LPF - sounds like an adware browser plugin

based on the current setup LPF logged-in members should only see static image ads (e.g. images hosted on LPF server), and static text ads.


dynamic ads can appear for members not logged in from 2 other ad networks. these networks are generally problem free. only remember 1 issue on 1 of them where it caused mobile browser to redirect to an app.



in terms of backing up windows system... what i do is this

every month or so boot a live linux USB

use 'dd' command to make exact bit for bit copy of drive to another source.

then if you ever run into a problem use dd to restore exact system state from backup source

Go to google chrome settings, click "advanced settings" extension then go straight to the bottom and select "reset browser settings" AT YOUR OWN RISK,
