    CK5 does not have a virus, we have virus scanning in place as well as 24x7 on staff to monitor things like that.

    You sure it wan't a Active X warning prompt or a Java warnning? Some browsers if you set them on high security will come up with a warning for the possiblilty of getting a take over on those features.
    I haven't had any thing like that and we just updated Norton a couple day's ago.

    Maybe a spyware warning because of cookies from some user's images?

    When you mentioned cookies in users images, that reminded me that there is a member here that will bring up an eyeball in my tool bar. When I click on it it tells me that cookies were blocked and tells me the address. I just cant remember what the address is right now and I guess I havent stumbled across him today, because the eyeball icon isnt there.

    Might want to start checking out the "HOAX" pages at Norton or Mc-fee's place before anouncing a virus alert. Those can cause as much trouble as a real virus. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
