    Is anyone else still seeing the pop-ups? I've been using the latest versions of Firefox, Chrome, and IE (although I think you can download IE 10 beta right now, I'm using the latest v9 build). I've never seen any of these pop-ups mentioned, and I'm on here quite a bit.

    Puzzling, for sure.

    Thanks for letting me know - still working on this. Not much hair left to pull out as I've replace/removed a very significant amount of the site so far.

    Been lurking here for some time the last few weeks.

    Never got any virus or malware message myself.

    Has anyone seen this on a page other than the main news page?

    I just tried it on the DSLR Camera & Lens Comparison link from the main page and got the virus message. After closing out of explorer, and reopening the page it seemed to work.

    I have not experienced this on TDP but not to long ago it happend on another site. A new window opened and I was told I had a virus on my computer and had to to download software. I got scared and thought my computer had been infected but after doing some research it turned out to be an SQL server injection called "Melissa" that had infected a database connected to the spesific site. I am not saying this has happened to TDP but I does not have to be a local infection. It could be as Bryan said, something connected to the ads.

    Bryan is clever. I am sure he will figure it out. :-)
