I am beginning my search for a good deal on an aoogah horn for my '25 tudor. I have seen several on e-bay, but no nothing about what to look for or what sounds different horns make. I was beginning to do a little research.

I googled "oogah and aoogah horn" Amungst the long list of websites that appeared, was one listed as below: DO NOT CLICK ON ANYTHING IN THIS "COPY AND PASTE"!!!!

'oooga' Fun Horn, AutoAtv, Fiamm, Novelty Auto Sound at Bargain.The FUN HORN is powered by a heavy duty motor, easily installs. in vehicle. any Key words oooga : horn, ahaooga oogah horn, horn, aoooga horn, ...

WHEN I CLICKED ON THE LINK, IT BEGAN DOWNLOADING AND PLAYING A PORNO VIDEO. LUCKILY, MY VIRUS PROTECTION STOPPED IT IN ITS TRACKS BEFORE IT GOT PAST MY TEMP INTERNET FILES AND SPIT THE DANG THING OUT.

It is really sad something as insocent as a search for an aoogah horn for an antique car grabs you, throughs you in the back seat and takes advantage of you like a helpless girl!

Be careful out there!

Same thing happened to me last week.I was doing a search for sound proofing material and how to's.Site started downloading something,I got out quick and didnt nothing happen.Dang shame.A couple years back it was happening to the lawnmower racers website.

I wish they would do something with hackers that would stop them in their tracks.

I'd be suspicious of anything with a Russian URL. A lot of times that's a clue that all is not kosher. I got a scam email the other day from somebody claiming to be in Northern Ireland, but the URL said it was from Spain.

The ru is the country code. Everything is legal in Russia. They have no controls or concerns. The message could also have come from a server in any country and just appear to have come through the Russian server.

Sometimes these things won't let you out by clicking on the exit on the box. They just continue asking you if you want to download the the player or whatever while infiltrating your computer, so be ready to quickly hit your computer off button to stop them in their tracks. If your search engine has a safe site filter setting you should set it to the more moderate setting. On Explorer, click on "Tools", then, "Internet Options" then "Security", to access the filter settings. It is essential that your computer be equipped with a firewall or virus protection such as AVG and Pop-up ad protector. You should also do a periodic check using Ad-aware, to eliminate worms that have come into your computer through popup ads. These worms monitor your computer and collect information about you and your friends to pass onto the spammers, so they will send you spam using names you will recognize, so you will be more likely to open it and let in a virus. Most of these sites have free downloadable versions. Jim
