It seems that my website is being token over by a meta tag "click to continue>by I Want This" this doesn't happen with opera but its doing this in Firefox so I would assume it is also affecting IE and other web browsers, i know that "i want this" is quite nasty. it took me 4 weeks to get it off my computer, i am wondering if theres anyway to eliminate thees meta tags. along with the mal-ware link it brings up imagery that i don't want on my site being it is intended for educational purposes.

Ive seen the meta tag in various posts and sights besides mine,



"I Want This" Ive had some experience with that file, im not shure if the source is the same as the mal-ware i had but i would suspect it is.

crazzy, I don't have this problem on your website. I would suggest that you try to remove third-party scripts from your website, if any, and restore the default templates (create a template backup in the Design section before doing it). You might also need to check your PC for viruses.

as for the third party links I'v attempted several ways of blocking the meta-links
A. reset the default. the meta-links are still there

B. the following modifications slowed but did not stop the linking of meta tags.

<head>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<title>$SITE_NAME$ - $MODULE_NAME$</title>
<?$META_DESCRIPTION$?>
<link type="text/css" rel="StyleSheet" href="/.s/src/css/971.css" />

</head>

I have deleted all items in red this slowed but did not stop the connection of third-party scripts

C. have tried to scramble the background lettering with links and invisible characters it works but makes the website look odd

as for any viruses on my computer.

A. I have done full system scan from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE to my own programs and applications everything seams to be clean.

B. i have used netstat -b i don't have any strange or misleading connections scripts or communications running in the background. nothing but my anti-virus and web browser has a connection.

C. did a spy-ware/mal-ware scan of the computer.

D. used proxies sites to double check it wasn't from my connection

is there something that i'm just not thinking of ?

crazzy, it's either antivirus, the virus itself, or maybe also some browser addons.

Thanks sunny, it ended up being a browser addon.
