I got 2 virus alerts at work while viewing this site. I have viewed this site at work for a couple of years without any issues. Just wanted to make everyone aware.

Yea, it's kind of weird. I've had Kapersky freak out on me while just browser the forums before.

And I had 2 blue screens of Death in 3 days. o.O
One of those times I clicked on the bookmark for NL, but it's probably unrelated, just a random virus from somewhere else trying to annoy me.

I just had a problem myself. I was starting to read Corbie's "Calling" article and i got some message about something (maybe not matching? trying to remember). anyways, i just keep trying to read and a virus alert pops up on my screen. The thing is, that I'm using my Wii to view this. So instead of clicking on it (in case they rigged the x button) I just reset.
There some hacker on this site?

The boldface above is a best practice for those who encounter any suspicious pop-ups in their browsers, regardless of platform. For example, If you're on a Windows PC and you encounter a pop-up you don't expect, don't hesitate to press CTRL+ALT+DEL and end the process for the browser (e.g. "iexplore.exe"). If you get such a pop-up while visiting this site, remember that it is probably just coincidence and not caused anything here, as those pop-ups are set to display randomly. However, if you do see them while here on our site, try to take a screenshot of it with ALT+Print Screen, then use the Contact link at the top of our page to let us know.

I have never experienced any of the problems mentioned. I just thought I'd point out that you can't get a virus on the Wii browser (to my knowledge) so wouldn't worry about this if you are using your Wii. Also as said before never click the X's to close pop-ups,it is often part of the image put there to fool you and will usually have the same effect as clicking anywhere else in the pop-up box, always close from task manager or right click the tab in the taskbar and close from there.
