I help admin the taigownersclub forum. Two members have reported spy-ware/mal-ware type pop-ups while on the forum in the past month. One of them took a screen shot:

Hello,

Can you tell me what anti-virus do they use? They have been some "false positives" because of avast and avira lately, for avast it s fixed because we have reported to them that they were making a mistake.

I will ask about what AV program they use. The pop-up I linked to looks like mal-ware, etc to me not an AV notification. The wording of it looks very suspicious.

Hello,

When they are getting these pop ups, are they viewing the site via a mobile or desktop?

Since the issue isnt really regarding accessing the forum itself and more of a pop up issue, I am going to move this to other problems, it fits better there. Wink
