    Malware Warning Pt Deux

    Hi Guys,

    My Norton's just gone haywire with warnings about GMI for the first time. Something to look into?

    I've only gotten one message (just now) but my firewall neutralized it (It was a malicious URL)

    getting malware warning all of a sudden as well....
    "You want free speech? Let's see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who's standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours. You want to claim this land as the land of the free? Then the symbol of your country cannot just be a flag. The symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest. Now show me that, defend that, celebrate that in your classrooms."

    Two occurrences today, each time when first signing on ... stopped by firewall. I'll try to trap and posts warning results the next time it occurs.

    Had to control alt delete out of GMI - assume I was being "attacked" by the same. As usual my McAffee has proven to be utterly useless, by my free malwarebytes anti -malware software picked up a few items and cleaned 'em off my computer.

    Just a quick point of frustration with McAffee - several times it has let malware/viruses on my computer without even a pop-up. Though they are happy to remove any viruses for the low cost of $90. They never seem to have an answer as to why I have to pay to have a virus removed that their software let onto my computer. Done venting. The free software I got now does everything McAffee can't.

    At the office the page was very slow to load and it launched Java which I've never seen before so I killed the browser. I just got in now by doing a GMI Google search and entering from that page rather than the splash page. We use McAfee here too.

    I'm glad someone started this thread. I was getting the same thing at home today. Here at "not home", my browser froze when launching. Seems like it takes too long to log out too.
