Angry Has the forum been compromised...?

Last few days my home pc is hanging in the forum when I press the click the back arrow.

"transferring data from secure-us.imrworldwide.com"

Is this legit?

Also, today the refresh was hanging with " waiting for beacon.krxd.net..."

Anyone else notice this?

An online answer said that krxd not only includes data security but also (and this is where krxd comes in)
  • visitor tracking and monetization services (i.e. using your personal information
Makes one wonder what "personal information" is being collected/////

No issues here James, and as you know, I bounce around back and forth all over this place...

https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard

then run several anti-spywares...
free or trials available...
I like
AVG..
Malwarebytes..
Vipre...
Avast...
Sophos...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I don't have a problem with virus or spamware.

It is just the PC seems to hang at these other servers the forum routes through.

just run the CCleaner... your PC will smoother afterwards...
run it with your email and browsers closed... take all of several minuets...
running it several times in row gets better results... let it do the repairs and removals..

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I use CCLEANER (crapcleaner) all the time. Does a god job.
