There recently was an application that tricked a lot of people I know into using it. It was ‘Profile Peeker’ or something of the sort, which allows you to see who’s been looking at your profile. It was a scam to get your phone number, so that you could be telemarketed. By the time I realized it wasn’t good to pick and allow, it was too late.
The problem I now have is that my computer seems to be compromised. I have pop-up ads coming up when my pop-up blocker is turned on. In addition, I read your solution to removing the malware and I no longer have an application button on my account-pull down menu.
