    No to iobit, as far as I know. Freecorder is something my daughter uses; sound recorder for pc.

    Iobit found that the url I sent then WAS dangerous but did not say whether or not it came from them. However, I am fairly sure it was not as I had been using iobit for quite some time, and trouble free.

    Well, we can still blame MS can't we? Besides, he knows it was cos of a virus. And, now that I see that his kid uses the system, I agree with the "Virus waiting to happen" assessment hahahahahaha.

    This is on a url sent to me via iobit:

    Start Over » Adware » Remove tv.channel157news.com Pop-up
    Remove tv.channel157news.com Pop-up

    On July 24, 2013 | Under: Adware | No Comments

    tv.channel157news.com is another address where users may see Sponsorship pop-up advertisements. It noticed that the address is being utilized by adware to promote various products. Previously, we have published other address such as othersa.info andbig.deluxeforthefuture.com. Both shows the same pop-up ads labeled Sponsorship.
    This may not be the last time that the ads originating from the same adware. Attackers have designed it to utilized various web address aside from the latest tv.channel157news.com. As you can see, all mentioned web address published ads that are relevant to survey, questionnaire, fake raffle, contest, and some other stuff that aims to catch your attention.
    It is clear that adware are taking advantage of user’s sensibility toward the subject to be involved in the online survey. On some instances, tv.channel157news.com will prompt to complete the questionnaire that asks for your sensitive details in the end. You should not provide personal details especially online user name, passwords, or contact numbers. tv.channel157news.com may use gathered data for fraud activities.
    If you keep seeing constant pop-up advertisements from tv.channel157news.com no matter what web site you try to visit, it only indicates that your computer is infected with adware. You can only stop getting redirected to tv.channel157news.com ads when the adware is completely deleted from the computer.
