My anti virus software keeps picking up that a suspicious program is trying to download as I look at threads and post. Also some posts are coming up as a google 405 error?

No Dave got the same message and so did I on my wifes notebook. It only gives you the message once and it said something about microsoft help. I took a screenshot but it would not paste into word/email after I came off the forum. There was also an ip address mentioned 128.

If anyone else gets th message please post it here.

Thanks,
Simon

My antivirus blocked the alleged "attack", but I did notice that the forums took a particularly long time to load, that time. Did anyone else notice that?

Forum's loading fine to me and did not observe anything funny from my antivirus. Has it stopped?

Thanks for feedback, I'm doing a lot of work in the background with web hosts and forum software vendors to determine what the issue is.

I'm experiencing the slow down.

Please all members have you / are you experiencing any issues with forum, please say even if the answer is no. All feedback really helps.

Thanks,
Simon
