Default Virus

Setishock had the same problem, though his AV stopped it before it did any damage. my AV didnt stop it, hopefully it just made my comp restart, i think ive caught it, but just a warning to everyone, i definatley got it from this site, it is the only website i had open, and all of a sudden a load of virus warnings came up and my computer restarted.

just warning you lot, and hopefully getting an explination from David...

I ran a LiveUpdate just in case. So far so good, no viruses as of late. Then again, I had my PC running for the last 3 days and haven't shut it down yet. Just watch me reboot this PC and eveything starts to screw up...

Hopefully not.

I too am using IE and haven't had any problems at all - even with frequent visits to CF. I'm guessing it's coming from somewhere else.

EDIT> This is my 1024th post! Two to the tenth power, woot.
