club pogo and getting ad banner at top of all windows

★★★★ Novice

On all my pogo screens I'm getting a banner that is from ROBOLOX and is throwing things off.  I'm cleared cache and java and cookies.  Download new flashplayer.  NEED HELP

It sounds as if you've picked up some malware/adware. Run a utility such as Malwarebytes or Spybot Destroyer. (Free Programs)

Also look for entries in your Add/remove programs that you don't recognize. Remove foobar, Gamevance, Yontoo, Shop at Home & Browse 2 Save if you show them listed.

 

Here's a link about malware/adware: http://games-forum.pogo.com/viewtopic.php?f=214&t=48142 



Also, if you don't recognize a certain listing such as ShopAtHome in your Add/remove programs,

just Google it to find out information.  When you've determined it's unwanted, remove it & reboot.

 

Some malware sweepers may not catch them. They will often come bundled with programs you choose

to download - always opt for a custom download when given that choice! - & could also be added

in program updates such as browsers, existing toolbars, and other auxiliary programs - always choose

to set these programs to "prompt me when updates are available!" rather than automatic updates.

These do not come from Pogo.com.

If you've recently downloaded a program, you could start there.  Good luck!
