Just want to check if I'm the only one with this annoying problem.

Sometimes when I go to the Index or the View New Posts option my computer block a download attempt from an ad which I know nothing of. It has been happening for at least 3 days and it's from inside this forum.

Thanks in advance.

I suggest running your anti-virus program. No issues with ads on my end. Anyone else?

I too definitely suggest running both a virus and spy/adware scanner on this one. I checked both on my end and neither have any sort of download popup.

I had some similar pop ups a couple of weeks ago, but I thought it was something to do with MSN. Nothing recently though.

Is it possible that the message is coming from an avatar hosted from an untrustworthy website, Mephisto?

If you could, please get a screenshot of the message next time it pops up.

My anti-virus program, like always, found nothing unusual.

Funny of fudgestix to mention Messenger though. I believe the first time it happened I was with the MSN open. Strange.

And Typo, I don't think it's coming from an avatar. Like I said, it only happens in the Index and in the View New Posts page. As for the message, it's something along the lines of "For your protection the Windows blocked a download attempt from this site to your computer."

Sometimes pop-blockers prevent the DM box from popping up. Do/did you have an unread DM in your inbox?

^ Excuse the ignorance, but by DM I assume you're talking about PM's?

If that's the case then no. I didn't/don't had/have any unread messages.

Yup. Sorry: was clearly in Twitter mode.

Well, given no-one else has reported anything, it's possibly a localised problem. I'm sorry I can't help more but do come back if it happens again/gets worse.

I was waiting if things went back to normal before replying and yeah, it seems everything stopped. Don't even know what the Hell happened.

If the problem happens again I'll send another report. Thanks for your concern.

Glad it's (apparently) fixed itself! :)
