    Not the fount of all IT knowledge I’m afraid, but my Virus checker is coming up with

    TROJ GENOME.BK from popup[1].js

    and says “Stack overflow at line: 3367

    Everytime I click on a new page on the forum

    Surely this is not a good thing?

    It’s the Chinese, they’ve used a buffer overflow attack to compromise your machine and turn it into a communist warrior. Best destroy it now before your PC starts attacking UK military systems and shuts down nuclear power plants etc.

    or just run Firefox and block pop ups, scripts, ads etc for a much quieter life all round.

    Try clearing your IE cache.

    Instructions here

    Just the temporary internet files bit.

    Thanks – tried clearing the Cache, but still appearing 🙁

    Is no-one else experiencing this?

    Does this message appear on every page, or only some of the time?
    What anti-virus software are you using?
    I’ve had a good rummage on the server, and as far as I can tell it is only likely to be the Amazon ad (rotating spot, 3rd one down) causing this error, and this is likely to be a false positive from your AV software. You may want to consider updating it.

    I had it on works PC this morning using IE then IT dept rang & got me to log off as malware detected, when I logged on again it was fine – home PC all OK as well.

    Ooops – just been out for the evening.

    Thanks for the reply Tom – using PC-cillin and have just done an update.
    It’s only on some pages. I’ll switch off and on again and see what happens tomorrow 😉
