I've been reading the Quilter's Message Board for 2 years and have never encountered this:
When I click on this website, I get a warning from "Cisco" (???) saying this site may contain viruses, phising scams, etc.
Then it asks me if I want to continue or leave.

Anyone else experience this?

Also, I clicked on past message board sites-same thing happens, whereas it has never contained this warning.

I'm confused!

I clicked on ones where they pop up a warning and then try to start scanning your computer for viruses. I close it real quick and run my own virus scan.

Yes, I haven't had any trouble for years on this board and the last three days the quilting board message they send every morning, my Trend Micro is not wanting me to open it. I better talk to Patrice or someone.

those scanning for virus thingys you should not click on the x to close it. You should open your task manager and end task... Thats how you get the virus from clicking the x to close it.

OK I'm ignorant. Where is the task manager?
