    Hey,

    There is an advert on the main page for free screensavers, in the square advert space under the top stories. I cant remember what the name of the company was, but when i clicked it, it redirected me to a website, which in turn tried to pass malware to me.

    This is that malware file address the anti virus caught:

    http://ak.exe.imgfarm.com/images/no...SaversFWBInitialSetup1.0.1.0.cab\f3Setup1.exe

    Im using my bootcamp vista at the moment, hence the fact that the exe was caught by my antivirus. Just wanted to let you guys know about this tho, incase your using windows and click it.

    Edit: if i see it again, ill screen grab it. couldnt remember how on windows.

    On Vista go to All Programs>Accessories>Snipping Tool. I don't know the shortcut for XP.

    screenshot would be helpful if you see it again, thanks.

    It was a top of the page banner?
