    What the ad below the image. It popped up one of those fake virus warnings when it loaded.

    Regarding the fake virus ads, i’m always seeing those ‘Stop read this, fix rundll, click here’ type of dodgy ‘download our virus, we promise it will fix your non-existant problem’ ads.

    about the ads, I suggest getting adblock or something similar. really helps!

    yeah adblock works excellent. stupid ads disappear and make reading a million times better.
    *unless your using an outdated slow unknown browser, you have adblock in the store or online.

    Asian Angel – Yes I have seen that those are actually links to other articles. But never the less what is the best resolution to use for windos7 ultimate and what is the latest windos @ the moment?

    If I’m going to a site that’s sketchy such as funny picture, videos, etc I set up a limited account and use Inprivate browsing. Last week, I was on such a site and a full screen pop-up came on saying that the FBI has evidence that I broke the law by viewing copyrighted material, etc and I have to pay $200 to get my computer unlocked. For the heck of it, I logged off and back on and the screen was still there, but all I did was simply delete the account and scanned for malware and all was well. I suppose I could also use a virtual box as well.

    @X-m@n – The best resolution for your O.S. will depend on the particular monitor or laptop screen you have with your hardware…

    Soon the latest stable release of Windows will be version 8 (OEM and such next month).
