    Has anybody else been getting tons of spam the last few months?
    I just installed a newer version of MacAfee that has site adviser in it
    And when I go to 3Dshoots site its red flag so I clicked on it to see what
    It had to say about this and its said that 3Dshoots posted my e-mail on the net
    To several other sites and to groups has any body else had this problem? Now I’m getting spam from lol I should say scams for Africa lotteries and UK. Lotteries and yahoo
    And all sorts of crap looks like I need to change my e-mail addy now to get it to stop

    I would love to see screen shots of this. I want these so I can email Macafee and ask them what is going on.

    The only way your email is listed on 3dshoots.com is if you run a club and have it listed for people to contact you under Club Informaton. Your email address is not available from the forum.

    Yes I'm sure I know I'm going to take a thrashing for this post but I thought if other people were having this problem that Chris might want to take a look into I will do some screen shots of what the site adviser says when i get on my other pc so u guys don't think I'm making it up or anything

    it's MacAffe, I have installed one of the best anti-V, and spam tools on the market. How do I know it is the best out there. Because it is the one that most of the big computer nerds and tecs I know are switching to. It works great, and does not slow down your computer like MacAffe and nortons does.
    So not pushing it but if it is good enough for those who live on there computers and have 3000 to 6000 in there systems. It is good enough for me.
    Check it out.

    I do get spam from yahoo alot but I doubt it is from just this site.

    I do know we are not allowed to run Norton programs anymore on our government computers. Seems Symnatec and other companies are considered more secure and better quality now days. :noidea:

    Those are from all the porn sites you go to! :tape: :doh: I don't think this forum is to blame. Once I gave my info to north american hunting club my email went in the trash. I have so many email addresses blocked it's not even funny!

    There are 4 MAIN computer security issues out there right now...

    Spyware / AdAware
    Virus (Virii)
    Norton's Products
    McAfee Products!

    If you have any or all of the above your system is running like garbage! get rid of them!!! I have received no increase in spam at all since I've been using my current email addy (also on the one I signed up on here with).

    McAfee cannot possibly know what information 3dshoots is giving out to other companies even if he was. It looks like it is based off a single complaint that someone made that McAfee assumed is true. Trust me, get rid of that horrible software and your life will be better :biggrin1:

    I've been getting spam since well before I registered with 3D Shoots and I have not noticed that I'm getting any more than normal.

    In my personal opinion McAfee is a joke. I think they cause more computer problems than they fix. The guy that works on my personal computer and the guy that works on our company computers both say stay away from McAfee. When I took it off my personal computer it speeded it up considerably. I now use some free thing called AVG or AGV something like that. Seems to be working fine.

    You need some type of anti/virus protection now adays.The only real problem with most of them is that their hard on the drivers....and they track your sites you go to.Would be affraid to down load one that was free from some site.Get the wrong Trogan....and it'll shut your computer down.
