    Is this CricketWeb's greatest poster in the short history of the forum?

    Was watching Richmond v Essendon on a site of, ah, doubtful provenance too, so might not have been CW, but seems heck of a coincidence.

    My laptop going boobs up the other week coincided with this, and the only program i had open on both occasions were web browser (first time I was playing ICC too, and AVG popped up, but the web was a constant in both breakdowns). Can't specifically remember if CW was open, but would've been at some point in that session.

    Sorry guys, forgot to update this thread.

    Our host conducted an audit of the server last week and did indeed find a virus. It was cleaned out at the time. This virus was only targeting people using IE browsers, so if you were using any other browser, you wouldn't have had a problem.

    They've put a few extra programs on the server along with a daily check with an email to myself if anything is found.

    Same virus took out my hard drive yesterday as I clicked on a link from CW forum to Fertang's latest front page article. Hoping the IT people can fix it.

    What URL was this Neil? Screenprint would be good

    The anti-virus the hosts installed on the server hasn't picked anything up which is strange.
