I just tried 3 times to access the thread  Messages Happy Valentines Day and 3 times got a warning that this site has mal-ware that may harm my computer and then asked if I wished to continue or go back to safety.  What's that all about?

I wouldn't know about that, Qoais, I just went into the same thread and didn't get any message.  What browser and internet security are you using?

The forum did get an upgrade over the weekend and maybe that has confused things.

I'm also finding this site to be very very slow in responding.  It takes a long time for a page to load now for some reason.  Maybe that's my computer too, but it wasn't like this before, just in the last day or two.

Hi Qoais

No its one or the other, Internet Explorer or Firefox I believe... your computer could be bogged down cause your internet provider could be having problems, telus has been slow these days if you have that one, or if it is wireless that could make things slower.. 

Well I noticed plenty of these posts here are from many sites? it could be easy to pick up a virus by doing this going to various sites.. I would recommend a good virus scanner? And go from there? If you have no viral scanner right now or if your scanner can't get rid of the virus, you can go to systems restore in your computer and restore your computer to a past date, reset it before your computer started acting up?    (To do this go to control panel, performance and maintenance, then system restore and follow the directions from there.. )

It seems I have Internet Explorer 2, but it is not my default browser.  I use Google Chrome.  Not like I know what I'm talking about or anything!!  Telus is my server - that's my telephone company, and they really are not that good at it, but whatever the problem, there's just too much going on for simple little me to figure it out!!
