Norton being temperamental again. Probably the popup ads. You just need to adjust the settings.

It is not pop up ads... It says what virus it is and what file is infected. But then it says it can't reach the file. When I entered this time to get to this thread it came back again.

i think it deals with somethin about cookies but thats just a guess, and if it is you just need to put your protection thing down in your internet options i think.

It can be pop up ads because of the javascript strings pop up ads use to generate. Anti-virus sometimes sees them as malicious scripts or spyware. I use Norton and I don't get virus warnings here at all.

Well, I don't know what it is for sure, but I do suggest using Mozilla Firefox browser. Maximum security there, I use it myself.

No popups, no hazzle, all fun.

Depending on where you are in the world, the adverts that pop up are different.

I will pass on this information because this has happened before and is becoming a pain in the rear.

I just got 3 Trojans while visiting the specific section of the forums. Norton Anti-virus detected them and deleted them thankfully (it was a cookie file of some type). I should've written down the name.

Go here and complain til an admin does something about it. Whenever I visit certain forums, my VirusScan tells me it cleaned a trojan. That might be what you're getting.
