Good on you DK! Your posts just crashed my system. Norton download quarantined virus in my temp folder IE5.5. :fmad:

When I now go to one of your posts my system loads up a virus warning.

I say piss off your fancy stuff cos' it is risky to everyone else.

All other users - ensure you have latest definitions.

It's gone now, all it was was a picture, there's no way it could be a virus. and all it was was html and UBB coding.

Not sure at all. I'm no computer geek so feel free to correct me. All I know is I go to a thread with his stuff on it now and Nortons stops everything.... The first time was a total system shutdown and restart using Nortons diagnostics and scan.

Until I hear different I'm not visiting any other posts.

Okay - back in action. This laptop came up with a Norton Freezeguard on this post. Ran the fix and now okay.

Can't figure this out. Two PCs and both didn't like it....
Now No.2 is okay. Back to No.1 and see........

With all the software I have access to there was no virus in any of the content put on these forums by myself.

Sorry to have caused this scare, and if problems persist mail me please.

Nortons can be very suspicious of "ANYTHING" that it thinks even looks like it could be a virus. Most likely it's just nortons being overly protective.

Guys i am glad to report I have found the cause of the virus scare it is to do with a bit of a missunderstanding by the virus scanning software in question and one of the html tags i used, it was reporting a non malicious, non problematic bug in my code of all things. I assure everyone 100% that there was no virus or security risk to their system and the bug has been ironed out.

I also wish to clarify the belief that there are .exe files in my signature or in my posts this is not the case all I use is html coding the the few animated .gif image files both of which are non executable.
