    Yesterday before I logged on, I saw a big block that said" YOU HAVE A PRIVATE MESSAGE".
    Not complaining, ha, but dumb me clicked on it & it locked my computer up & put all this stuff on it saying to call a number & pay to get it disinfected !! I was ok cause I just called Dell & they fixed everything ! Just wanted to caution everyone though I'm probably the only one that would do that !!
    Thanks, John !!

    huh, first report of that ever. it shouldn't say Private Message as we don't use a system that calls it that.

    not sure, maybe you dumb thumbed the keyboard to a different site?

    It was in the ad spot just under the headers. I was there just a little while ago.

    This is what I'm seeing now, but the first one I saw was the whole banner.

    Those ads are google ads, have nothing to do with the site I'm surprised that google did not catch that.
