    If you are getting a virus popup or a download popup from this site, I need you to post the following information in this thread:
    1. Virus or Malware Information in the Popup
    2. Your Operating System with Version
    3. Your Browser with Version
    4. What Page you were Viewing
    5. Time of Day (roughly)
    The more information I have the better off I will be at trying to figure out the problem.

    Thanks everyone for their help.

    I am getting full scans done today on the servers if the problem continues I will be getting new servers and moving sites one by one to see if that fixes the problem. Going to be a long day today that is for sure.

    Not that it is worth anything, but I feel for you. I think I speak for each of us when I say thank you for all you do to make this forum a reality. Your hard work is not unnoticed, nor unappreciated.

    Thanks Neilfli for typing my exact sentiments! I don't get anything weird using my phone...but then again the shout box and PM's and the "like" options are not available. I hope you figure out quickly for your sake.
    All of your hard work really is appreciated! I'll keep checking back and via phone for the "all clear"!!

    I didn't try logging on since I ran the virus scan,.. so maybe that is the case.

    So far everything is great! I'm going to check out the tailgate pic's before I gotta go!

    Yeah the warning is coming from Google. I already submitted a request for them to review the site to remove this warning.

    Maybe we can clear our cache, browsing history or cookies? I haven't got any pop ups since I've been back on here as of 4:14pm EST. Earlier I got the same Google message as LTF posted.

    It should be cleaned up. Google gave us the thumbs up now, disaster averted! Definitely adding a new item to my admin checklist, that is for sure!
