Ads On DavesWeb? Part 1 of 2

DavesWeb doesn't include any advertisements.
Imagine our surprise this morning when we noticed ads on our home page!

Was the server hacked? Checking the page source, there's no code for an ad, so perhaps the server is ok.

Ads show up whether we use Chrome or IE. We view the page from another computer and NO AD! Aha! Some rougue adware running our our own computer is clearly injecting these ads! What's this?

Ads On DavesWeb? Part 2 of 2

DavesWeb doesn't include any advertisements. When we spotted an add on the DavesWeb home page one day, that's how we knew we had a virus. Just a little research turned up the saver on adware, which was injecting ads into web pages we were viewing and probably other things unauthorized.

We first removed the variantly-spelled saevoeroN program from the control panel. Similar browser plugin items we had spotted earlier in both IE and Chrome were removed once we uninstalled the saevoeroN program.
I suppose we're lucky here at DavesWeb because we were able to spot this offender, being ad-free and all. Amid the clutter of most web sites today, it's hard to see how anyone would notice just one more add. I guess that's how these guys figure they can get away with stealing a little money...for now.
