Looking forward to hearing from you and hope you can get everything back to work soon.

G day Christian.

Yes this add came across the screen in the area where the purple Regton banner is at the top of the page,it would not go away so i uninstalled it in the normal way,then i had a man dressed like a butler stuck on my screen then i right clicked the mouse and sent him off,
but when i went to my google home page and they had removed it and put their own one there and then google was no longer on my list of settings. Nor was any other type of wotsit servery type thing . so after calling my brother ( head honcho in the giggle bites world ), he told me how to fix it while he was on the phone, I wish i still had my chaulk and blackboard back. or a carrier pidgeon but if i had one someone would shoot it or the cat would get it,

Thank you for you're help and concern just watch out fer them sneeky varmits

AU, that's what happened AFTER you installed it. What Christian needs to know is where you got the original request to install the smileys. Was that on a Google ad (the ads that change just between the upper and lower menu bars) or some other place like a link in a member's post. The moderators try to keep you from those links in member posts by deleting the links but sometimes you see them before we get to fix them.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Thats the problem with them they just take over your mail as default then you have to change it back to what it was a lot of bother for nothing realy.

Those are Google Ads and will vary depending on region. Regton ad? Not here. I get ads for Australian banks and the occasional smiley ad. Is this the one you got?

I'd warn everyone about installing this because it puts up a search bar but it is not a virus. It his VIRAL, however, and will install itself into everything it can to keep you coming back to its site. They get paid for clicks to their site by their advertisers and this ad was a Google ad.
