IT'S BEEN GIVIN ME THE SHITS ALL DAY.
They are part of the advertising but what good are they when you can't get on the site to see the ads.
I know they bring in money fot the forums but not being able to get on is a joke.
As long as they provide money to keep the site open I can't see them going.
I got the hosts file off the kazaa lite website and added 127.0.0.1 trafficsyndicate.com to the list. It stopped bothering me, but I don't know if that had anything to do with it. Another way might be to download it and then run ad-aware or some spyware checker program. I'm not really sure if it works, but I haven't had any trouble with it for a long time.
Yeah, I'm not quite sure how I got it to stop but I did. I have a shitload of anti-spyware and virus crap on my computer. My best guess is it either has something to do with using ad-aware or norton. I'd suggest running ad-aware. I found tons of cookies and shit from lop.com which I suspect is related to trafficsyndicate.com. I don't know. I just fuck around with shit.
On the advice of Nitemare I downloaded the latest version of ZoneAlarm from Kazaa and I have not had any trouble with Trafficsyndicate since.
I was getting problems every 3-4 pages originally but it has been great.
The file size is 4MB and comes with access keys.
