Last night as I was on my pc . I suddenly found myself in a poker game. How does that happen? :?:
Ok, I will step out on the ledge. The only way you can end up in a place you didnt intend to go was if you had a virus...errrr....a tag ...that lead you there. Some malware will infect your computer without you knowing it..and direct you to a site you never intended to go to. Its like a form of forced advertisement. I would suggest you do a scan with a good anti malware program. If you dont have one, I suggest you use a free one like Spybot. If you have a newer computer, go to windows store and make sure you have windows essentials....its considered a very good antvirus/spyware program. Spybot is mainly for malware, you will need to pair it with an anti virus. Good luck.

I recently posted an article on the forum here https://www.50plus-club.com/forum/fish- ... 57175.html that addresses this and what different types of virus' are.

Spybot, available at htrtp://www.safer-networking.org is an excellent and free tool - but it mainly targets spyware, not malware. For malware, my favorite (also free) is malwarebytes. It's available at http://www.malwarebytes.org

See my article about the different types of virus' ...and safe surfing!
