I keep getting a notification from my Norton security that it has blocked an attack every time I load a page on this website :(

I was about to say something similar, I've had a virus on my laptop a couple of times that seems to kick in when I come on the site. Luckily I know how to deal with it now & remove it, but it's definitely concerning me a little.

Me too.....one that says my hard disk is broken and then takes me through procedures to fix it (looking like microsoft), ending in a chargeable site. Coincidence? I run macafee and it doesn't detect anything....

Latecomer- I had that virus twice a few weeks ago before the new board version, and it's a bit of a pain to fix. The chargeable site, as I'm sure you know, is a con. However after installing more virus software, that has now gone and hasn't come back. Yesterday, as I was on the forum, I got notification of 2 extra dangerous viruses. Luckily my computer spotted these and deleted them, but I do think there is a problem with this site- wheter it actually is a dangerous virus I don't know, but my security software is definitely picking up something!

I'm now having the same problem and now the forum itself has disappeared. Only my iPod seems to be working

What should I do?
My reviews can also be found at "A Night at the Theatre"

AVG blocked a threat when I came on here - so will be giving the site a miss for a while

My Antivirus (Avast) also just blocked an attack as the page loaded. Hmm.
