Default David, this is really urgent. It's spyware on CF...auto installing.

When I browse with IE, this forum has spyware stuff and just jags my PC. I had to reformat three times now because of it. I can't say where it comes from, but I can say that this thing is dangerous. Fix it, please.

And nonethelless, I can't even make threads anymore. There's permanent timeouts.

I've been using IE here at work to visit the forum and i haven't had a problem yet, my pop up blocker hasn't even blocked anything.

I don't have a problem browsing the forum but then again I block popups, ads and all that stuff so I don't see anything.

IE7 Beta 3, nothing funny here yet.

And please, stop worshipping Firefox, it really isn't that great. It's not secure, its popup blocking fails regularly, it lags your PC etc etc.
