I don't think it's the site, I think it's your computer. You better run your virus software and figure out how to get rid of it.

I just loaded the site and I don't get it. Maybe something on it is triggering it. It might also be spyware on your computer, I'd check both things.

Considering you're running Photoshop CS2,
I'd guess the virus came from P2P network usage and not this site.

By the way, this particular worm steals credit card data so formatting is probably recommended.

But can you explain why the only place I get the warning is the GS main page?

Antivir flags it on all three PCs in the house.
(Even the DVR, which does nothing online)
AVG, NOD32 and Panda don't pick it up.

I've uploaded the offending file to Antivir. 
Let's see what they say.
I'd guess a false positive.

I getting that same problem and I just got this PC yesterday morning. because i ordered a brand new one from dell. because I wanted to be prepared for whenever spore is released. and this is the second site I've been on with this one. the first site was yahoo. But I called microsoft because I thought it was just a virus that could have been some how come from yahoo. but they checked both and said this site was "unsafe". whatever is going on needs to be addressed seriously. And not just by saving "it's your PC not our site".

I'll let Steve know and have him check it out. I still don't think it has one but it's best to be sure.

Antivir (the company who's software is flagging the site) says it is a false positive.
In other words, it's a bug they'll fix and there's nothing to worry about.

I have looked into it before but the person who reported it couldn't replicate it.

I will try to find out what this is but I have a virus-scanning program running on the server every single night and I have a report that the site is clean every day.

Those who are getting this error clean out your computer and "remove" this Trojan (if it exists) and then try coming back to the site and just this site to see what happens. I will look into it a bit more on the server-side.

Steve, it's no problem. :) Read Danzik's post above yours.

Thank God, I deleted all my virusses yesterday. I thought I would have one again...
You scared me Smileyman... Fwooh.


Though is this a new program? I think I personally won't use it when they have such bugs in their program, that what I think is new.
I use AVG Anti-Virus and it is very great, I would say try it out.

AVG is okay, but it messes up my other computer by scanning in the middle of the day instead of in the morning like its supposed to...
