Each time I get here (for three days now), I get a virus warning, telling me here's an html script virus.
What's going on? Can you help me?

Never happened to me. Maybe some of our computer experts can help?

It shouldn't be possible for the site to become infected with a virus since this site is hosted on a server with Linux operating system, and not Windows. 99,9% of all viruses and exploits are made for Windows.

Just to make 100% sure I've contacted my server guy to check what he says, but from experience I know that these kinds of problems usually appear because of a virus on your computer.

I would recommend that you download this free anti-spyware program:
SUPERantispyware
and run a complete scan of your computer with it. This is the most effective free software I've ever found. I used it only the other day to get rid of a nasty trojan virus that caused my computer to slow down and spew pop-up windows and alert windows.

Next time if you get a warning... write down what the warning says and post it here. That way I can tell if it's a genuine warning (which I doubt it is) or if it's a virus on your computer disguising itself as a virus warning. smile.gif

Thanks for the link. The virus warning has disappeared now, but it was a bit too good, I think; at first the antispyware didn't accept my ID so I couldn't get online, but now I fixed it - I shut it off again.

No problem. Keep your eyes open. If it happens again - take note of the details, like I mentioned above, and I'll be able to help more efficiently. smile.gif Quoting the error message word for word is my best shot at figuring out what the problem is.
