    Been happening only on the Gator Country site for several days now. Doesnt happen anywhere else. Been getting these beeping pop-ups of virus alerts.

    Havent noticed any problems on my home PC though, but just thought I'd alert GC mods.

    I was getting them a couple of months ago.. Lasted for a few days.... I didn't respond to them so they got the hint, it seems.

    Are you referring to alerts from your antivirus program or bogus alerts from the web? If it’s the latter yes I’ve been getting several over the last couple of weeks. Extremely annoying, don’t know why my antivirus isn’t blocking them.

    No, they're loud, annoying, beeping alerts from the web, and ONLY on GC.

    They pop up about 10 seconds after I log onto a GC page.

    I only get them on Internet Explorer. When I use Chrome it doesn't happen. Could be a matter of time until it happens there too I guess.

    Does it hurt if you scroll through GC while peeing?

    Yes. Only in the last 2 days. Really annoying.
    It's nice to know others have had this too. I thought it was me.

    Dang, Coronavirus is more infectious than I previously thought if it's hitting computers now. Well, just slip some lime vaccination in the Coronavirus and enjoy NSD tomorrow.

    I am. I have Webroot and it warned me not to click on anything. It seems like an attempt by Norton to get your info. It is very loud and you have to restart to stop it. It started a couple days ago. I am also getting a full screen ad from fireplayer and have to restart to get rid of it.

    Its only on my home PC and it's pretty new. I only use a few websites and GC is the only one it does this on.

    I've never clicked the alerts, I know better, but it's annoying as hell.
