    I'm getting constant Virus Warnings in using this site through Avast Virus Protection

    Wow....never had a problem on a site before like I am with this one. Especially when I click on some of the archive type choices at top of the page.

    Sorry, but didn't know where to post this and who to let know.

    ^^^ I am also getting many virus warnings on this site. Thus far Norton seems to be taking care of it.

    No problems here - using Windows 7, Trend Micro Titanium, Firefox.............. and I DO get warnings and page stops on other sites - not all, some.

    You can always go into your A/V program and change your site monitoring levels ................

    it's not this site - it's something you clicked on somewhere -
    that installed malware onto your machine -

    to fix it -

    download and install MALWAREBYTES - antimalware -
    it's THE BEST program I know of for cleaning out this type of crap -
    it's FREE - it's EASY to use - it WORKS -

    here ya go -

    Little déjà vue?

    The same happened a year or two ago a d it ended up being an advertisement. Since that "ad" may not show up on every ones computer due to what ad is going to be displayed. Or level of membership, lesser ad that is.

    I personally haven't experienced this yet as I haven't been on a computer yet.

    If you experience the malware warning again, you anti-virus program should list the URL being blocked. Please provide us the url that is being flagged so we can further investigate.
