hmm, only use one of them antivirus!

if either of them is free, get rid of 1 and keep mcafee (its paid I know).

im using Avast! 4.0 and its not detecting anything.
-Avast is a leading antivirus in the world, (Higher than AVG & Mc affe)

your forum is safe.
and there aint no damn popup either Wink

You do know that these guys are using Norton, and Norton is known for completely fake virus'! (right)

ForuMotion does not put virus' onto their severs!
it is illegal (im 90% sure)
