    I usually use Firefox - being safety concious it will not even let me access the site. I get this:

    However the site is working fine on Explorer - not even so much as a warning

    Hi Guys

    My Mcafee web security blocked the site as malicious and referred me to a microsoft security site.

    Is the site safe ???????

    I've allowed it onto my pc as a safe site

  5. Yeah, I'm getting my antivirus program getting all excited as well.

    An admins work is never done hey?

    Perhaps it was the "pod arena widows and orphans collective". Our spouses have ganged up to get us off our addiction.

    It's 11.00PM and I been working on it since 2.00PM; been liaising with consultants in the US and about to hand over to another in the Netherlands ... very sophisticated attack this one.
  7. Sorry to hear about all the inconvenience, Craig. Nothing is happening from my computer/location to indicate that Podiatry Arena may harm my computer.

    Probably a more accurate warning for Podiatry Arena would be:

    Thanks for the good work Craig.

    I was almost releived when this warning flashed up. My wife just assumed I was looking at naughty websites. Phew, there would have been fireworks if she had found out that I had been on PA again!

    Its been a long night and its still not fixed....
  10. Yep getting all of the above - almost made a mess in bed when the first antivirus alarm went off. If this is going to be a regular occurence then I may be forced to disable the antivirus on the same bass that the fire-alarm batteries have been removed. Sleep interruption. Get on it CP!

    Makes you wonder who/why/what the motive was? Who have we p!issed off?

    Looks like its over. We had to remove all the adverts to get there (they will be back soon), but it does mean the pages will load slowly as the page still looks for the adverts and can not find them....its been a long haul..
  13. If the "buy admin a beer" function still works I move that we all use it.

    Thanks for keeping our playground safe Craig!

    I still have 901 files to edit ....
  15. Don't worry Craig....by the time you get all the files edited, your twins will be looking for boyfriends and you will need to be visiting the local gun shop rather than playing with computer files.:rolleyes:

    nah!! .... they turn 5 in 4 weeks and already pestering me to have boys at their birthday party. I have already had to have a "family conference" with them over an incident of one stealing the others boyfriend ... they got the lecture about 'not doing it again' and 'let this be the first and last time that they steal each others boyfriends' ..... I pretty sure they had no idea what I was talking about!

    On a positive note the malicious software that got hacked in was not really harmful. If it got past your malware/virus warning program it would change all your desktop items to 'hidden' and come up with a message that sad something 'critical hard drive error' ... ie it looked bad; if you clicked OK, it then took you to a website to buy the software to fix the "problem".

    There was never anything wrong with the hard drive and the desktop items were still present, but just hidden.... very sneaky.

    Then you will be in my position, telling you 11 year old Grand daughter why boys are not the place to be and her education is..........innit, cool, maxed out,and all the other young peoples sayings that I haven't a clue what they mean but I try to talk on their level:dizzy: and she looks back at me and mentally pats me on the head and says ok gramps whatever you say...off to a party now.

    I'm with Isaacs on this I have a pint waiting for you fella whenever we meet again...it's on me and thanks for your hard work on our behalf..
