    Last few times I have checked in on the forum I have been hit with pop-ups inviting me to take surveys or a chance to win something. I suspect this is something that site admin would like to know about.
    If anyone else has the same problems I understand that admin need to know the address responsible so they can get onto Google and the likes to play hell. So here is my offering today:

    Ill be interested to see how many people are getting this? If there's a lot then it could be on our server. If its just Willy then i suspect the compromise is at his end.

    Twice to-day, when selecting forum from favourites,

    Mcafree security comes up with red background "WHOA, DO YOU WANT TO GO THERE"

    just kill it & forum comes up ok.

    never had same before, or when using other favourites etc, confused, any advice ?

    or is this a similar pop up other members have endured ?
