Steve.
I think you have a virus on the site. I'm not a computer expert so can only tell you it flashes up on a regular basis and my virus guard (Bullguard) stops it going any further. It only ever happens on this site.

More likely a problem at your end. Nothing being picked up here, I would guess it is what's known as a "false positive". Never heard of "Bullguard", it's not one of those that regularly appear on comparison of major anti-virus toolkits.

Maybe it's me also but I've had virus warnings on my log-ins over the past few days using both Chrome and Windows Explorer and had to close down my visits - only on this site, as it happens.....

Agreed, Paddy. It's only on this site I'm getting warnings. Always on the third post I visit.

Would concur, not every visit, but two or three times in last week, again only on this site. I'm not sure if its a virus on site, as its not my security message that comes up, but one from a company I don't know. Maybe a hack to get people to click on link? Either way I have rapidly shut down my pc and not clicked anything.

There is no virus on the 'site'. That would require adding code to the software. You can use a Safety Check tool to check https://transparencyreport.google.com/safe-browsing/search . It is more likely a rogue advert which would normally be closed down fairly quickly.

There are basic safety precautions you can take. If you have the site bookmarked then make sure it starts https:// You will see a green padlock in the browser bar which indicates that the connection between your web browser and the site is a secure one. Make sure that your browser AND any plugins are up to date and obviously never click on anything that says you have a virus.

Is your message accompanied by a loud high-pitched sound ?

Mine is, every time, most recently two minutes ago

I've had that a few times recently. But not on this site. It's always on mainstream sites like e-Bay or the BBC news.

Well the BBC website doesn't have adverts on when in the UK so it sounds like something already on your computer...

I have Malwarebytes and the message I get is

Website blocked due to a TROJAN

I then click on cancel and this lets me continue until I go to a different thread when the message reappears.

Do a quick Google search and you will find masses of posts on the Malwarebytes forums with the exact same problem and advice on fixing it.
