The advertised site on your page is a scam

The advertised site on your page "Fix Acer Problems in 3 Minutes. Free Download (Recommended)"
seems like a scam - after download the "free" program and registration in which my email address has been obtained, the site demands money for the "free" fix

It is indeed possible that some of the firms that pay for these services try to scam you. As always, it is up to common sense to separate these scammers from the real deal...

What do you think od Timothy Seaton's program called Tinnitus Terminator

Hi June:
Here's a link to a forum discussing this program.
It would appear that it is just another SCAM, perpetrated by someone with zero moral scruples about conning people out of their money.
Your family doctor should be able to refer you to an ENT specialist who can determine if anything can be done.
All the best.
I also have tinnitus.
While accessing the "forum", a pop-up appeared advertising free sample tapes to help treat tinnitus. Is nothing sacred? We can't even discuss scams without the scammers trying to do us.

Download Free PSP Games - The Easy Way

Is downloading free PSP games the way to go? Most people are aware they can download free PSP games from the internet, except they don't know where to start. Typically, such PSP game downloads found via an internet search can be unreliable to say the least!

Most methods to download free PSP games are illegal, or at best some kind of scam- but you will find certain PSP game downloads are from reliable honest companies. I've done some research and put it into simple tips to help you avoid getting ripped off. Sit back, relax, and learn to download free PSP games-the safe way!

Download Free PSP Games- Tip 1- Find a reputable site!

Spend time on any PSP site, and it won't be long until you find an Advertisement for free PSP games to download. If you get tempted and click on an ad or popup, you'll almost certainly find a poor selection of PSP games to download, and what's worse there will usually be problems when you actually try to download the PSP games, such as full servers or ridiculously slow PSP game downloads. Avoid sites like this-If you do manage to download free PSP games it'll be a miracle if they work and your computer hasn't been infected with something nasty. Also, I'm never 100% convinced of the legality of sites like this.

Download Free PSP Games- Tip 2- Be realistic

If you find a free PSP game download site, be realistic about it-if it seems too good to be true it probably is. Slightly higher on the quality scale than the illegal sites above are the "scam" sites- Everything seems great with sites like this-they will have the latest PSP games to download, along with movies and wallpapers etc, but when you try to actually download something they will ask for a monthly membership fee before you can, or what's worse, a per download fee. What's the point in paying to download "free" PSP games? It may be technically free as you are paying for the membership, not the "free" PSP game, but it still costs money. Again I advise avoidance.

Download Free PSP Games- Tip 3- Be prepared to pay for quality

Don't worry, there are some sites that are totally trustworthy. I can think of 3 or 4 that will allow you to download unlimited free PSP games as well as movies and TV shows etc. What's more, to download free PSP games will be much faster from them. The catch? Well in most cases there is a one time membership fee. It's about the same price as a new store-bought game, so basically for the cost of your next game, you could download free PSP games as often as you like, with no further cost. Sounds like a smart plan to me!

So there you are-download free PSP games the easy way today!

Upon viewing a Web page, a message appears stating that you do not have the proper plug-in required to view the page's multimedia content. What is your next step ?

The message is a forced feed advertisement and is a phishing scam attempting to get you to click and install their bogus software posing as what ever plugin they are emulating.

Is the $100 Target coupon on facebook a scam?

If it is free yes. They are ads and if you look in the corners or below the advertisement it usually says the source of the ad. Most things have a catch or are a scam. If it says winner, claim now, or its vibrating or moving rapidly it is a scam.

How do I fix my VAIO with virus.

You most likely have inadvertantly installed some malware from some download site., nasty toolbar or browser extension. you need to find the program ,extension or toolbar and uninstall it from your computer. conduit is a particular nasty malware thet I have seen on nearly every computer I have fixed for somebody that was using up 100% of its processor. Advertisers get paid for every click you make on their web sites so what they do is take control of your browser and use up all of your prosessing power to repeatedly click on their ads. Ruining your day because you can\'t get anywhere on your computer and scamming the real advertisers.

I have used "perfect uninstaller" to remove the nasty programs. you can download a free trial at . dont use softronic or any of the other hacked download sites like bittorrent.

oovoo, music downloads, free movies, porn sites, and anyprogram with the word ad in it should be removed from your computer. I usually start by opening up internet explorer with no addons in safe mode. then remove chrome,firefox or any other browser left, then i uninstall adobe and java. and any other nasty programs while not conneted to the internet. then reinstall java , adobe only from the developer web site. getting rid of all the trash is going to take several hours. or you can do a factory restore which will take just as long.

I hope this helps. and be very careful what you download, there are a lot of scams like popups that say your computer is at risk. and free downloads that bite.
