Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I have no idea what I did to have this happen as I'm usually super careful about this stuff, but apparently I got some spyware on my netbook. Or whatever it is refered to these days. Basically I get popups every 20 or so minutes on my internet explorer, then the description box in the left is this little gem:
This advertisement was served by Gamevance.com (GV) casual gaming network in accordance with your membership. GV is an ad supported community; the GV ads you receive support the free games and daily prizes we provide.
GV displays an average of only four ads per day while browsing online. If you would like to deactivate or uninstall your account and stop receiving ads you can do so anytime by clicking here.
And the click here part takes you to this webpage: and gives me these very suspicious uninstallation instructions:
We provide simple Uninstall/Removal method that erase all Gamevance files
Use our manual method by clicking the below link and launching the uninstall software. When
you complete the process all Gamevance files will be removed and no more Gamevance ads will be delivered to your PC. You must restart your PC for the process to be successful.
1) Download our latest Uninstaller from here: CLICK HERE
2) Run Gamevance Uninstaller and follow instructions (Click "Next" on first dialog window and then "Reboot" on second) -> your PC should reboot.
3) After reboot Gamevance should be completely removed from your system. To make sure, check for existence of Gamevance installation files in the Gamevance installation folder (%Program Files%\Gamevance - this is usually C:\Program Files\Gamevance\).
So can I trust their uninstallation instructions, or how do I go about getting rid of this?
