Trojan Virus on the Forum?

Just a heads up the last couple of pages I went to triggered my anti-virus. It said it blocked a trojan horse. So far it has said that 6 times. Btw I'm running the free version of Avast. Anyone else having any issues?

Alright well I'll be back when it's fixed. No need to risk my computer getting infected.

Crap. Too late. Time to run a sweeper.

I blame T-Virus.

Updated: No malicious items found in my scan. What pages were you on?

It was all of them. No matter what page I clicked on here in the forum my anti-virus would alert me that a trojan horse was blocked. It's gone now. I've browsed through a few pages now and it hasn't triggered my anti-virus.

About to do a full scan of my pc though and make sure nothing got through.

If nothing shows up its possible that you may have a false positive scare. Recommend to do a full scan in safe mode off the with no net connection after you are up to date on avast.

Probably the ads that are run on the site. Sometime it (software) gets triggered when in fact there is no virus/malware but you can never too too safe. I use AVG.

For my pc i use the following combos : avast, super antispyware, komodo firwall, disabled or/and uninstalled java, peerblocker. So far so good, no conflictions, no issues.

I had the same thing happen to me here the other day, too. I'm using Avast! AV. Things seem to be cleared up now.

My avast! Web Shield has started just blowing up saying threat detected. Did anyone having problems a couple of weeks ago find anything? If not, what have you done to get it to stop alerting you?
