THIS IS WHAT I GET EVERY TIME I COME TO THE SITE

HELP



Can you be more specific as to when it happens/occurs? Does it occur at login, or when you go to to forums, or latest posts? We need to know what your were doing and where you were at the time that you get this error msg. This is the only way we can know where to start looking for problems. Thank you for your interest in smoothing out our site.

+1 there, regardless of the fact that i'm less than normal in attendance here, i'm running XP Pro SP3 with all updates, Symantec End Point Protection (Gov't Issue since i'm military), Malwarebytes, Spybot S&D 1.6.2 and Firefox and I have YET to run into an issue with virus attacks from the site. I check this site from work (Military Maintained computer system and EXTREMELY TIGHT security policies) running IE8, Endpoint Protection and don't have any issues from there as well. If that doesn't tell you something, I don't know what it'll take to convince anyone else.

 

I would argue that a person stated in another thread that it was due to corrupt coding, however if that were the case, EVERYONE would be affected just not select individuals.

 

I'll echo one last point, Free is Free Gets. AVG has a HISTORY that you can look up and verify that they have consistently failed in comparison to other a/v softwares. They have more FALSE positives than any other a/v software on the market. Worst case scenario if you don't believe me, use a 3rd party evaluating party such as consumer reports and look at their unbiased testing results. Nuff said there.

 

To the admin group, notwithstanding anything, ya'll do a hellava bang up job around here, like the new facelift on the site, takes a bit getting used to but it's nice.



I'm a fan of AVG at work. It caught this problem, and blocked the threat all while not using ALL my ram like the big box Anti-Virus' companies.

 

I run Avira on my comp at home.

 

I hate to see this turn into a negative thread, that was not it's intention. It was made for a courteous "heads up" to the mods. Just my attempt to give back to the site before it hit someone else who had an outdated AV. 

 

It was handled well, soon enough the software swap will be a thing of the past.

mudduck, what link are you using to get to the site? It just occurred to me that if you using the old link that ended with .. module=jig or whatever it was then it may be giving you the error due to the fact that the redirect is not working properly.

 

This may be way off base but just a thought.

 

Try going to this forum by actually typing in www.smokingmeatforums.com in the address bar and see if you still get the error message.

WOW!! I have been gone for awhile...Had the nasty bug holding my pc hostage. I had to take it to get it professionally rescued. I am glad to read that the heads of this great site are working to fix'er up.and make it safe again. The virus problem was really my fault...not really having a good program to protect it. Thankyou so much for getting things taken care of...1 question though, how do I change the background so it is not so blarringly bright? My eyes dont agree with it.

Thanks

SOB

I know I shouldn't be posting here but just wanted to say that I get the same "system error" message as mudduck every time I log on to SMF, but I just go to forums and it's not a problem. I also have the motherload Norton and I haven't had any other problems, other than slowwwwww with pictures, which sucks being that I feel the need to post pictures of EVERYTHING!!! LOL! Izzz all good y'all!

That's exactly what's happening Jeff. I typed in www.smokingmeatforums.com and went straight to the forums without the error message. You ole smart feller.
