    Unhappy Viruses

    I was looking at a site with a DC3/C47 with invasion strips sic.and clicked on a button shown alongside the message - Automatically Fix Computer Errors.

    My Virus checker has thrown this out and refuses to load the site as it has a virus or a bad site for the reason :-
    MTML/Crypted .Gen HTML script virus

    Would anyone care to comment or preferably inspect the site

    My advice is never click on an ad. dealing with computer fixes or online scans. They are usually spyware or a virus. I'm not going to check the site out cause of what you said.

    I agree with you Jrod.

    Keep your mouse away from any odd adds on sites like:

    Congratulations, you have won. You are the 1000000 visitor to this site. Hurry click to claim your price.

    These ads are only bad for you.

    Remember to update your system when available and regularely scan it. Best is to set it automaticaly.
