Thanks heavens for that, it was driving me bat**** last night. I wanted to contact one of the moderators but couldn't even do that. It seems to have sorted itself now.

I was wondering what was wrong with this forum. My AVG anti-virus software keeps flagging up threats whenever I exited from each forum thread. But it seems to have disappeared now.

It seems to have sorted itself out now.

I had a curious situation where AVG reported the virus "HTML/Framer" and blanked everything out when I visited the forum, but then when I went to the site it said there were "No reports of malware at bikeforums.net for the last 30 days".

Glad I can get my fix, er, I mean social interaction again :)

It's possible their error was so bad they corrected it with a push, rather than requiring users to do it.

Only those with their updating set to auto update would get the update at the time specified in settings or the first time they are online (if they set that). Only goes to prove that you should always a) set a regular update interval (daily is preferred), check their forums when trouble occurs (it will happen to many) and learn to roll back and reinstall if needed (may show a bad update when removed) as recommended by AVG.

More often than not a bad update has to be rolled back and updates reinstalled where AVG is involved. Sometimes it takes more time for them to solve a problem.
