Your under attack Boy - it's all those nonsense threads that are the cause of it!


If this is serious tho - perhaps a mod can help when they read this?

Any updates Boy? Hope u havent been abducted!

It would be like that ep of The Simpsons, when the ship tries to zap up Homer..(with great difficulty!)

This is not a legit warning. It has nothing to do with Interference. It's actually the result of Spyware. It attaches itself to pop-up whenever you visit certain sites. You should run an antivirus program as well as an antivirus program to clean out your system.

PS... Interference is not based out of New York.

i had the same problem on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. same source in New York. and every time there was an intrusion attempt, i'd be blocked for accessing interference for up to a day.

i emailed Elvis about it, and he came to the conclusion that my security was set too high. he gave me this link:

http://www.sesameworkshop.org/aboutus/NPF_settings.php

for the URL's, put in interference.com and forum.interference.com

this is correct. Also... what someone said earlier about spyware is also true. Interference does NOT have any spyware, or anything of such which would cause an attack/intrusion on your computer. If this only happens on certain pages of the site, please list the URLs here. thanks.
