After getting countless viruses, trojans and malware from MFP, I finally started using Firefox and blocking ALL of the ads. I haven't had a problem since.
February 4, 2013 7:42 AM
Same here.

Just go it myself.

First step to safety on any site is make sure pop ups are disabled otherwise you're leaving the door wide open. Second, scan you computer every few months to make sure it's clean. Google, Microsoft safety scanner, set it to full scan before bed then walk away. MSS is updated every ten days with the newest anti virus definitions so it's very thorough. Or the quick scan will help if you're in a pinch.
The smartest thing you can do is get a flash drive with a little space on it, less than a half gig is fine. Then google, RKILL.exe, TDSSKILLER, and Superantispyware free. Download all three onto the Flash drive then set it aside. If your computer ever gets infected you can boot into safe mode then run those three in the same order. RKILL will shut down any malicious software, Tdsskiller will then clean the root of your system, then Superantispyware will bat clean up with a full scan.

you're welcome

At least Chrome is warning you of the malware. IE will just let it right on in. Hope you're also running good antivirus and anti-malware programs.

I'll pray for you.

I've received that about 5 times this morning. I think it might be from one of the ads?

Actually IE9 is much safer than any IE before it. It's body is essentially a hi bred of Chrome and firefox. It has received very positive reviews from the tech world and anyone on Windows 7 or higher has it but thanks for playing
February 4, 2013 8:09 AM
Its because the site is accessing your browser history/cookies/cache to give you ads tailored to you

No worries

I've been using Firefox and have never had an issue.

Huh! Good to know. I gave up on it a few years back... they kept saying it was better and better, and never was.

February 4, 2013 8:18 AM
Yup, I'm getting the same thing. Those ads on the side must be the culprit?

Received the same message. How do we notify MFP to do something?
February 4, 2013 8:46 AM
I got it too.

I believe one of the admins from MFP needs to get on this, dont they? Or are the ads and banners they allow on their site our problem?

Not to point out the obvious but yet you're all still here. How worried can you actually be ?

For me, it only appears on certain topics, not in all places.
