The New Post button is not working right now... I am working on it..

Safari and Firefox are issuing me warnings about going to your site Jeff. Just sayin'.
Getting malware warnings as well on Google Chrome
Same here with the malware warning, this is the info I get:
I think I have it cleaned up now....
Google warning should be off soon
This would be a good time to tell everyone that it is always best to have a good anti-virus program that updates itself regularly, there are many good free ones as well
My Favorite is Avast! avast! | Download Free Antivirus Software or Internet Security
Or many other free ones can be found here
Malware is everywhere on the internet and all it is is a big game of cat & mouse, if you get infected with Malware use the program below, they have a free version
SUPERAntiSpyware.com | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware! also Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download
Same here Jeff on Chrome, I just now logged in and it wouldn't let me, had to copy and paste the address, its never happened before.
I was getting "blackhole toolkit" blocked, when I clicked thread link in email

We are good again.... Sorry about the problems but it goes along with the territory. The internet is a dark place and there are plenty out there who want to do harm to your computer for a number of reasons, Mostly financial reasons, they like to steal your financial information. Do yourself a favor and use the links provided above to secure your PC, schedule and do your windows updates, keep your browsers and plugins for your browsers up to date.
I am just a truck driver, like you... I never took a computer class so I basically winged this from day 1, I have learned alot of how things get exploited on websites over the years but I am in no way as smart as those who design the programs to do this. All I can do is react and fix what is broken or exploited after it is done, The beauty of running the best forum software is any problem that arises most likely you can find something on it to fix it, there are certainly sites on the internet who's sole intention is to distribute Malware, but probably 99% of those have no idea they are even doing so because websites get exploited. Don't think the owner of this website (me) or basically any other website you visit often is trying to get over on you or mess up your pc if you see this problem again, It's likely to happen again one day, could be 15 mins from now or 5 years from now, so just keep your PC protected from Malware for any website you visit and then you don't have to worry about it.
Also NEVER hesitate to contact me if a problem like this arises, The sooner I know the sooner I can fix it.
CCleaner rocks....just sayin.
I use the pro version and it gets rid of the crap and leaves your good stuff alone.
No need for viri/malware/spyware scanners here.
Jeff is right though, you need to make sure you are secure because these script kiddies will strike anywhere, anytime. My biggest issue with microsoft is Internet Exploder (explorer). Any operating system that allows an internet browser to have full access to the systems complete file system is just begging for problems, but microsoft still hasn't figured it out. Do yourself a favor and use Firefox/Opera/Chrome and leave Internet Exploder on the back burner where it belongs. If you are a real adventurous person, try Linux and never worry about it...
I am having an issue when I click on the ABF forum in LTL area. I get directed to this http://vvvv.bodysportbrazil.com/main.php?page=3081100e9fdaf127 and it brings up a malware warning. I am not a techi so I am lost on it.
I am having the same problem with Firefox. If I go to Truckingboards with Safari, I can't log in. Camino works.
Check and see if any problems are still there and let me know.
I had same problem. I'm on Firefox. Problem cleared up now.
Hopefully I will figure it out fully before too long....
