Whenever I am trying to upload or download something (obviously sevenforums is an exception) , I am getting this thing ....
Name:  Capture.JPG
Views: 22
Size:  38.9 KB

It appeared to be something not good I have inactivated IDM, and the result is the same .... for all the browsers I've tried .... IE, Firefox, Chrome and Opera .

I have cleared internet cache, but no result . MBAM could not detect it in my system

How can I get rid of it ?

I'd suggest you clean cookies for IE and Firefox. Otherwise this Lavasoft discussion might help?

A couple of other suggestions before you go that route...

Go to the NAI website(Network Advertising Initiative) - make sure you are not blocking scripts for this page. This link will take you to the Opt-Out settings page. Scroll to the bottom and check Select All > Submit. Reboot and see if there is any change? If this prevents the problem re-occurring you may need to go back to the NAI settings to fine tune them to your liking?

Search User folder including hidden files/folders for any rubiconproject items in browser/chrome related storage locations, and remove?

As I understand it this problem is related to the Rubicon tracking cookie, and the window appears via your AV? Check your AV and AV forum, as this issue has been shown to be a false positive with some AVs?

I meant I want to upload/download to/from a few more sites like Photobucket, ImageShack , and deviantART

And after that, I am satisfied . The problem is gone

Thank you so much Oaken

This window is of Internet Download Manager , not an AV . The situation was ... click on any upload or download button .... this window appears and trying to download an image file .

It is not a fair practice from their part, IMO ! Why I am to download some unwanted stuff ?

Aha... I use a number of blocking tools (including Hosts Man server for ads + spyware lists) as well as the full NAI list and have no probs with those sites, and most others.

If it comes back, which it could possibly, you may need to blacklist the cookie in question- which could take a bit of work to identify.

Sorry Arc I can't help you with IDM as I've never used it.

You may want to look at this post I made concerning a possible alternative to IDM (depending on your requirements)?
