Something new just occurred today.  While PMing and responding to PM from another member, when I backed out to go back to Forum "New Posts" a virus alert jumps up and tells me they're sending a virus report to MS.  Wasn't happening the other day.  I noticed that we seem to have a "compatibility view" now.  Are these related?

Its not just this site. The ISP i work for has received complaints about getting this message logging into mail servers. It appears to only be affecting subscribers using IE8.

I use IE8 so that accounts for that.  I knew you guys wouldn't be the source.

I use IE8 and my ISP is MSN. If there was a problem MS would have clued me. Haven't anything to offer at this time. Don't envy the task, Brian!

Cheers!
