Unhappy Still Problems

Hi All

As Ann and Will say, the virus alert is sporadic, but my AVG anti-virus just blocked another trojan a few minutes ago. The ones that worry me are when AVG doesn't block them and says the computer is infected.

This is a real problem, as there's no way I can risk my system being crashed again.

I'm using Windows 7, Outlook Explorer and AVG Free.

Hope to hear from you with a resolution.

Regards
Lisa

Default Viruses

OK, now this has become really serious. Three times today (30/07) I've had the same virus alert, and my antivirus software has had to clean my computer. This has been going on now for well over a week. If it can't be fixed I'll be leaving the site. It's too dangerous to stay. PLEASE sort this out quickly.

We believe the alert is false and is being triggered by an advertisement on the page. We are continuing to investigate.

Default malicious URL

Hi,
I get a message from Avast saying Malicious URL blocked. Is it a co-incidence that it has happed twice in the last 24h? - each time just after your clock resets the scores for the day i.e at about this time. No problem in between these times, at least not yesterday. I will see if this pattern continues.
Regards, Ann

Default Fake App Attack Fake redirect 29

This is what I'm getting when I try to open email messages letting me know that one of my favorites has posted. Later, I got the same attack when I just tried to open TrekEarth. My Norton continues to successfully deflect the attack, but it's pretty scary.

Default Problem returned

Hi,
The problem has returned. I get a message saying 'malicious URL blocked' but only when I got to the forum.
Regards, Ann
