File Download????

Postby Mr T » Sat Oct 19, 2002 5:26 am

Sometimes when I log onto the forum I get a pop-up that has a stupid icon of a snail or hare that say's it is dowloading a very large file. It takes over my machine and I have to Ctrl+Alt+Del to get rid of it and then start again. Alternatively I have to disconnect my ADSL connection to stop it. I have an updated firewall (Zone Alarm pro) and Pop upstopper as well as a modified Home file in windows (WinXP) that returns pop-ups to sender and it still gets through!!!!!
It only occurs sometimes and only when I have logged on to this forum. Done all the Virus scan for trojans etc.
Any ideas on what it is and how to stop please :!:
