    questionmarket.com?

    Is DCResource associated with questionmarket.com? I was browsing today and had a questionmarket.com popup. Whatever and wherever that's come from, it's now made it into my list of blocked sites on my svchostsfile.

    We sure aren't. Do you remember where you saw that ad? Was there a questionmarket banner elsewhere on the page?

    Anyone else?

    Are you sure it wasn't just your computer? some kind of spyware or something?

    I can't recall which forum it was in but I went in and suddenly a questionmarket.com form came floating across the page. Big green thing. I*'d only just started the computer so it's unlikely to be a hangover from a previous site. This computer is spy and virus ware free.

    Or so you think.

    BTW, most anti-spyware programs can not detect the stealth version of Vundo...

    Well Rhys you're not alone. I just had the same one float across. I was in the Photo Gallery forum Sunsets thread when it happened.

    Pop the entry into your SVC hosts file (on XP) and it should stop these things from happening...

    Start-Run

    Then type "notepad %windir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts"

    This is what my SVC Hosts file looks like (blocks a load of nasties).
    # Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    127.0.0.1 localhost
