Scary message, my computer didn't have it and it's working fine...

Maybe someone reported the site as malicious software as a 'joke' so it's just automatically showing the message?

It does make you leary when the ads are changing constantly. With ads come the other stuff...
I even saw another GSD forum advertised on here the other day! Wonder how much that cost Gary?

Mine did this a while ago.... It also did it on another GSD forum. Though regardless, I'm still going to come back.

Good Question!
Photobucket gave us a virus last time I went there.

It's the advertisements that I would be worried about - they are the most likely cause for warnings such as this popping up.

If you are running Firefox as your browser, you can install the add-on AdBlockPlus, which disables all advertising, both static and pop-up on websites, so you would not have to worry about virus-containing ads anymore. Plus it's so much nicer to browse when you don't see all sorts of annoying ads.

I actually don't really notice the ads, lol. I'm good at tuning them out, it helps if you don't use firefox.
