We are no longer using 2checkout as a payment gateway due to the fact we take credit cards directly. All 2CO users have been re assigned to "credit card". You can still however select paypal or mail in payment from the invoice drop down menu. Thank you!

So sorry if the support request have been slow tonight.. been battling the "Play Pickle" virus on a customers computer.

Don't go to their site if you run windows (most normal humans) but if you have crossed the line of being sick of viruses and use Linux or a mac go there and read.

They have a disclaimer relieving them from responsibility if you get a virus. Legally protecting them.

What kid is going to read down 19 paragraphs before they download a game? The pickle even resembles Larry from veggie tales, or perhaps all pickles look the same to me.

This is the biggest stupidest scamming company I have witnessed yet. What is next? A wood chipper that says "Enter Here" with a smiling Elmo face then a disclaimer scribed on the tines explaining they accept no responsibility for bodily harm?

The disclaimer will not serve to protect them in actual court. Kind of like those stupid things people put on the bottom of their emails that say "If you received this email in error, please delete, blah blah blah".

It doesn't actually mean anything... just an old "internet" wives tale... Legal "contracts" cannot preclude you from prosecution in illegal activities.

Now... tell me about this Pickle Game.... Sounds pretty fun! :-)

Be careful of the "fixes" you find on the internet, some of them are destructive.

Will it let you look at your startup folder? I did beat it eventually but I'm pretty sure this one blatantly puts the startup in the startup folder.

It's been a while, what OS are you using?

Yeah I remember it being nasty, and had actually carried a lot of adware in with it. Constant popups.

Let us know if it comes back, spybot was great at one point but lack of funding because it is free has made the crew rather overworked. I stopped using it a year ago.
