Hi Phillip8977

I recently experienced drop down deals on my pictures on my website, no security warnings.

When I search for dropdowndeals I discover that they used Yontoo,

I then uninstalled yontoo in control Panel under remove program, and the dropdowndeals disappeared after I uninstalled Yontoo.

Maybe you can do the same?

Hope this helps :-)

Hi Philip,

Isabel is correct in that this most likely is a malware program on your computer. At no time would we ever distribute viruses on your website.

1. On your computer, go to your control panel
2. Click on the icon the icon for add/remove programs or it may say Programs and Features.
3. Uninstall anything that looks suspicious (most likely it will say Yontoo)

For more information, please check out http://www.symantec.com/security_resp... or https://community.homestead.com/homes...

Thanks!

Chris
