Running Avast free seems to do it.

I like Spyhunter. It will scan for malwear and also does a registry scan. Any detected problems will be fixed. I also run Avast which scans much slower and requires a reboot of computer to fix. Spyhunter does not require a reboot.

How to kill a virus in your computer?

Fill your bsthtub with pure alcohol, and soak the computer in it for 3 minutes. Guaranteed - the virus won’t trouble that computer again!

Same here, though I was upset with they took away the safe website screening function thingie several months back. Now the only way to get it is if you use an AVG Internet search engine instead.

Good anti-virus software is a must, but there are types of malware that they cannot necessarily detect or remove. I was running a very highly rated anti-virus program (not one of the free ones either) and noticed that Windows updates were not installing. I manually turned on the updates only to have them immediately shut down. I contacted tech support at Microsoft and they suspected I had malware on my computer and suggested running a malware /spyware remover. I ran the program they suggested and the program detected and removed several malware programs that my anti-virus had missed. The problem was then fixed. I have since run this malware remover periodically in addition to anti-virus scans. While Mac viruses are not common they do exist so even a Mac could get infected.

I totally agree.

I hit post one time--then immediately hit escape to cancel it, hoping the lack of time will prevent multiple posts. Sometimes it works--but not very often.

It seems to be happening most severely when someone posts a ping list. There seems to be a handler problem when dealing with a large number of post recipients.

That does appear to be the case. I'm on several other lists that seem to consistently multi-post the pings.

SA, How many folks are on your list?

I currently have about 170 people on my list.

It never happens when I reply to one or two people.

I'm wondering what the cut-off is for lists that are having issues. It seems that most of the lists I'm a part of have way more than a hundred folks on them. Recently Sunkenciv  discontinued his GGG ping because of complaints about the dupes, which is a major loss on FR in my humble opinion. COuld you try splitting your ping into something less than a hundred per, and see if you still get dups? I think if we found the magic number it would aid John in tracking down the cause.

Well, when I cut the list in two parts, I did not get double pings. I cut it roughly in half, without counting the number of people.

Learn how to come up in Windows safe mode and always be careful with e-mails.

so, this isn’t really a solution to the double-ping problem, because you still end up making two pings, but it does narrow it down a bit. You said you had split the 170 folks into roughly half, so we know that it doesn’t double-ping at less than 100. I’d be interested in seeing if we’re getting double pings at 100 persons. I’m going to ask some other folks to see if we can’t work together to figure out where the issue lies. If it’s the number of recipients, I think that would give John help in locating the issue.
