    AVG Virus Threat Pop Up

    ASN

    This happens quite often to me on my laptop.

    I get a pop up from my AVG saying there is a virus threat about this forum. I normally ignore it but is there any reason for this?

    Don't say, "It's AVG," because I am keeping it on the computor.

    Any info appreciated.

    Thanks

    No need really, I've got the same problem, it's documented within the linked thread I posted up, and I've also sent a copy of the 'page source code' to the admin, but nothings been done about it.

    The ball is in their court....

    Are you suggesting using a better AV to cure the problem, when it's clearly the site which has the problem?
