    Just a quickie....

    I was just on the post about replacing the batteries in the alarm unit ( http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/genera...a4-b6-alarm-siren-replace-nimh-batteries.html )
    and my virus scanner popped open warning that there is a virus on the page. I think it was to do with one of the advert banners, not sure which one sorry. I had been on the page for a little while before it popped up.

    Anyway, just letting you know to be careful

    I just went to the same link and nothing happened.

    Is it some remnant from when we had all the virus problems?

    WooHoo No adverts.

    I know the adverts generate funds for the forum, which is fine but they are bloody annoying when you keep seeing the same ones all the time and some time you see them in stereo.

    That is what pops up when im replying to a message. I assumed it was only happenning when i replied from my IPad as I am not sure what software I have on here that scans for viruses, but it happened late last night when I was on my laptop.

    Adam, I thought it may have been related to the Ads, at it was random. If you scroll up, I've posted pics of the possible threats, there's 2 links you can see in the pics, same as Sandra's posted up in the post above mine I think?

    Emailed page source code following a pop-up from AVG (third or fourth time I've seen the message this week).

    Aye spoke to a few lads this week who mentioned they also get this virus.

    I get it every now and then when on the site and appears on any page. I clear my cookies and internet history evry week or so and it still comes up.

    I did have Spybot but the Tea Timer was taking up silly amounts of memory. Might have to look into it again, but just make sure I don't install the Tea Timer.

    if you dont like spybot u could also try "advance care systems" its a really good freeware program just doesnt pick up all the things that spybot does. and yeah the tea timer does get a bit annoying just disable it
