I have just tried to upload photos and my computer has told me that I have a malware on it. A  Microsoft page gave me a phone number to ring which I did.  The person at the other end identified themselves as a subcontractor for Microsoft and wanted to take over control of the computer to find the malware but I wouldn't let him.  At present I am doing a full scan which might take 3 hours so please be careful of Photobucket.   I did pick up a spyware some years ago from it. :)

SJ every time I attempt to access my photos in photobucket I meet with a series of layers of ads  :(

Yes Welder the adds are abnormal .  Some years ago I attempted to get into Photobucket and found the adds continued for months.   I have had a malware before but was able to get rid of it.  The computer has been scanning for three hours and it has completed about half .
I might go back to Avast as a security system as at present I have Defender which is a free Microsoft programme. ;)

It has been good until now and it updates automatically and scans a short scan once a week.  I am doing a full scan today. :)

That treasury carved straight out of the cliff wall at Petra is magnificent.

I picked up two malwares from photobucket I presume.


Can anyone recommend another programme for posting photos on the forum.
Thanks ;)
