    Default o.o StopTazmo just virus'd me.

    Um...I love this site and all, and I've been frequenting it for quite some time. I've never had a problem anything like this before. Recently, though, I've had pop-ups from this site try to download things onto my computer without my consent, and worse yet, I've just gotten a low-level virus. o.o I feel so...betrayed, somehow. (lol) I just figured that the people maintaining this site would like to know about that...

    I have not seen anything like this, if you do get something like this, take a screen shot or save the HTML code, View => Source and save that code and send it to us.

    This way we can report it to our ads sponsor.

    Hmm. Okay. If it happens again, I'll definitely do that.

    I haven't had any pop-ups from Stoptazmo.
    It could be that you might have a spyware or adware on your computer that's doing it. You might want to do an anti-spyware scan and remove anything suspicious.

    I've gotten a lot of the pop-ups as well. I manage to close them but they've also been downloading weird things to my computer. They only occur though when I:

    -Click a download button
    -Click a manga title
    -Click a Post a Review

    NOTE:

    this is supposed to happen, the pop-ups are the sponsors of this site. if your not getting pop-ups then it is the act of the MIGHTY POP-UP BLOCKER!

    correct me if you KNOW that i'm wrong.

    maybe kane instituted "clicksorz". or something like that. y'know? cursor over a link gives a textbox about some google add about VIZ comics or something?

    but yeah, get a firewall, get a virus scanner, run em.
    24/7
    then go to microsoft's page (if you have windows) and get their antispyware thing. its the best out there, and its free.
    you'd be suprised what you have after the inital scan!
