Strange - I have some of the most sophisticated anti-everything ware and haven't had any problems.
Name of the virus would be useful, and will be passed on to our "weasels"

Thanks for the heads-up !

I'm using Avast and it hasn't popped up with any virus block warning on me recently.

ok, will respond just once more on this subject of the trojan. I JUST logged on to cbrforum, as soon as the cbrforum screen with the yellow cbr1000rr showed, the trojan alert popped up. he is what it showed:

URL: CBR Forum - Enthusiast forums for Honda CBR Owners - Smilies
Process: C:\Documents and Settings\xxxxxx\Local S...
Infection: HTML:RedirDL-inf [Trj]

avast! saved your computer from crashing
You just dodged a bullet
You may be wondering how you ended up with a virus, especially if you were visiting a ‘normal’ site. The latest research from the avast! Virus Lab shows that more than 80% of malware (viruses, spyware, and the like) spreads through legitimate websites, with only 1% coming from suspicious or ‘dodgy’ sites.

Good thing avast! had your back.

That's prolly just a cookie your software is blocking. Turn off cookies in your browser and see if that stops the error message. But there is no malware on our servers.
