It occurred on my computer on a couple of other forums as well as this one. My I.T nerd brother got rid of the Malware virus on my computer. It is not the forums fault.
Run Malwarebytes and Spybot will get rid of 99% of issues.

Thanks Wrex we are thinking this will be the case, our webmaster was saying a trojan virus was going around a while back affecting certain URLs & not others..

So as Wrex has said run your anti virus programs..
I'll also keep you up to date with what/if our Webmaster finds.

You should be emailing this to all forum members, or making a prominent link to it on the header of every page.
I'd guess that only a small fraction of members venture into this subforum, and so it wouldn't be seen by many people at all.

G'day dimmo, we will not being doing as you suggest mate, most members will on logging on hit "New Posts" so will see as it is We have had 150 odd views.

Thanks for the suggestion though.

Gus.

PS. If we determine that it's forum based we will indeed notify all as a matter of course, at this stage we believe it's a Trojan virus & not forum based.

Just received email from Webmaster. He stated that at this stage nothing shows it's forum based & is sure that as Wrex posted, if you see it run a spyware/anti-virus program on your computer.. again our Webmaster is still keeping an eye on this..

Sounds like adware to me, do as Wrex suggests and also download the hosts file ad blocker from winhelp unzip it and run the .bat file as administrator and restart your PC, this will block 90% off ad servers ip addresses
