just one more reason why adblock and script blocks are more of a need than a want.
thank god for avg as well. whatever slips through the blockers gets detected by that so im fairly well protected from mining scripts.

AVG is AVG FREE antivirus for windows.

in my books it is the best free AV out there mostly because ive been using it for the best part of 2 decades and still havent had any serious virus issues and by the looks of things, they are also one of the first to block mining scripts

Thank you. I also picked up No Script Suite which is amazing and incredibly user friendly.
