I was trolling for OTR on the internet yesterday when I stumbled across a website that looked like it might fit the bill. It is Radiorage.com. If you want a look, it is safe to go there and take a look, JUST DON'T DOWNLOAD ANYTHING! I did and here is the rest of the story.

I saw something that made me nervous, don't recall what, and so I closed the program taking me back to my Google homepage, but it had completely changed. It was peppered with logos including Radiorage along with all the usual social media sites. Not happy with this I immediately went to the two or three uninstall programs I have to UNINSTALL, but could not find Radiorage listed. So I Googled Radiorage to return to their website and I noticed on the page returned by Google, the top of the list was the Radiorage site and almost all the rest dealt with how to remove it from your computer!

I tried two or three of these solutions, but they would not remove it for various reasons. To make a long story short, down the page if you Google Radiorage is a link to a site called "2-spyware.com". It is safe to go there, and if you do, they have a pretty detailed explanation of what the problem is.

Bottom line -- it really cannot be called a virus, but it is serious spyware. Oh, I solved my problem with System Reset, taking my computer back two days and all is well now.

I got the same treatment when I wanted to download "add-ons" to my Firefox, which I will never do again.

System restore is the term on my laptop with Windows 7....

Still the best FREE OTR source: otrrlibrary.org

This is nothing more than a scam marketing / phishing site.
they have nothing to do with O.T.R., or any other streaming radio sites.
