Some other website recently had this happen. Turned out it was an ad having to do with coupons that was causing the problem. When the website owner took that ad off of their site the problems immediately stopped.

I had an Avast popup on one site, but I'm pretty sure it was a blog.

I can assure you that Eric and his team are doing everything they can. But, if this happens to you the best thing you can do is to take a screen shot and send it to eric@itseasytowin.com

I have 4 computers and we have tried it on all our computers and have found no problems. If you do a virus search for pdf.php you will find that there are none that exist. It really is just an error. I have called my son at MIT and I am going to have him see what he can find out too so that we can put everyone's minds at ease.

Good luck all --- by the way I do not work for and I am in no way associated with itseasytowin.com I just love the site and have a little computer knowledge.

Thanks for all your help. The only difference I can see from everyone else is I just closed the page and got up from the computer, I didn't realize something was wrong until I went back a while later and saw all the box's everywhere. That's when the computer shut down and I still can't get windows to load.

ok - i just got the warning and I have caputred the error from Norton and sending it to Eric - hopefully it will help him get to the bottom of this mess. Also Norton blocked it so I feel ok.

I love Eric's site -my son was a winner during the high school show and as promised got his check, bingo cards and coupons - my son couldn't be happier - so his site is legit!

guys if something like this happens again and you do get a warning screen from your antivirus programs grab a screen print and send it to Eric - he does respond quickly and it helps him to see what we see!

Good luck all!!!!

Just an FYI sweepers and Eric,

Due to time constraints on my sweeping, I have been unable to go directly to Eric's site itseasytowin.com for over 3 weeks, but I too am having the same issues most of you are having.

My computer was freezing up, booting me off my work site, throwing multiple pop ups onto my page etc. But I haven't been to itseasytowin.com for over 3 weeks. I've caught his show through youtube and facebook, but not the itseasytowin.com itself. I had to have goten this trogen.... the virtumundo trogen from a sweeping site, but it couldn't have been itseasytowin.com.... at least not for me. There has to be another sweep out there attacking us as well.

Downloaded and used spybot and cleared it all up.

BTW..... Miss you Fast Freddie!
