    Hi,

    Need some help and advice.

    Every so often I keep getting a download dialog box popping up asking me to download a afr.php file !

    Any ideas what it is or how to stop it ? see image below.

    Thanks for the swift reply.

    I have cleared cache regularly but it keeps coming back.


    Am I missing something ? the only suggestion in that thread was to clear cache :confused:

    Have you noticed if you are browsing a certain website when it seems to occur?

    From quickly reading around the subject it seems its a problem that may have something to do with ad-rotation software (the banner ads). I would suggest contacting the admins on the forum that it is happening on.

    Well if that's true then it's possibly the cause, the site has rotating banner adds which change every 20 seconds :rolleyes:

    Thank's for you time and help, at least I know it's not serious :D was just bugging me out :confused:
