The ad-block plus worked miracles for me on the viruses.

I don't think crunchyroll has viruses, I mean I never got one from this site.

yeah same shit here. Its pretty fucking annoying, if you have internet explorer it jsut downloads the shit on your comp. Thats why my cousins canceled their subscriptions to CR.

Hello, Not sure if this would be the forum to report this, but just wanted to mention something that is EXTREMELY annoying... There is one advertiser you use (great, I know they pay the bills) but be careful with whom you associate with.
I'm talking about the website advertising PerformanceOptimizer... upon accesing your site and when trying to simply "view" the anime index, an ad runs for P.Ozer, it actually performs a redirection to their site(seems to anyway), popping up a message pretending to be a system warning that if you close it, simply pops yet another message. (I use firefox so I can get out of it) but talking with friends who use IE, they mentioned that closing those pop ups actually runs/attempts to install a trojan... at best is an annoying ad, at worst it could actually attempt to install a trojan... Not sure if others have seen this behaviour.... you may want to check it out....

I do want to mention that I absolutely love the site and I'm grateful that all the series you guys make available.... Tnx.


To block out harmful pop-ups, install IE7Pro for Internet Explorer 6 and 7.

For firefox, install ad-block

http://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1136

OR

addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865

next time post your problems here:

Thanks arano =).
