What's more adorable, is that if you go to law school and become a lawyer, that automatically sets you up to be a politician.

When you become a politician, your suddenly qualified to be a banker, a business executive, a health care specialist, an environmental expert, not to mention a ton of other jobs they seem to think they can do just as well...

Sly Bob Ad block plus is available for Google Chrome now as well. If you use Chrome it might be a good idea.

Same here.

A malware/trojan tried to launch Saturday AM before the forum event manifested itself.
Wasn't even on the forums when the trojan popped.
Very suspicious here of some previous non-profit spyware on a sites I visited daily.
Their IT said I couldn't run Firefox or firewalls on 'their' server and that IE 9 was bad

Are you kidding me?! Who better to keep track of malicious code (usually advertisements inserted from fake/malicious companies) than one of the best web indexing companies on the planet?

If you use Google Chrome or Firefox they have built-in safety options (defaulted to ON) that frequently query the main list of report malicious sites and pop-up a warning. This is a major benefit of using FF or Chrome over IE and has been a significant improvement for typical users' infection rates on the net. Obviously these ads are on a rotation so you're not going to get binged on every visit but it looks like there have been reports from users here not heeding the warning and getting some sort of infection.

If you don't like it and want to go it alone, turn off the freaking option or use IE6, that'll be loads of fun.

OK Moms, looks clear this morning after clearing my internet cache..

Krelubot Sight seems to be fine now on my end. There was two days when I did not go because of the notice. Google really has a lot of control over things, now don't they? But, I don't know if it was google that did it. The antivirus software on the computer recognized something on the server and tried to help. Since many of the car forums were bought are likely hosted on the same server, the virus infected the server and all those forums were "infected" until it was removed. Nice to have it back.

Hambone I am pretty sure I caught the virus too. I had to restore as well.
Sucks but I don't think I lost anything, just a couple hours of my life.

nighttripper I had the block of the Solstice forum and told it to ignore....crashed my laptop. Then I got a fix me application that I couldn't get rid of. Then the files on my hard drive disappeared, got the message it could not find free space. Had to eventually do a registry restore then a system restore. All good now WHEW

Please read MomSol's post a couple above yours.
None of the screen shots posted matched the screen I was seeing, and as I previously stated, my screen did NOT state who the message was from, Google or otherwise, so...???

And yes, I did read MomSol's post above -- but that still did not answer my question. As the screen I got did NOT say who it was from, I was asking if the message itself (wanting you to click on it) could have been a Trojan Horse.
