I don't listen to any music on my phone, and I'm not about to start. When I tried to access the question answer site just now it immediately said there's a malicious virus, but I selected to access your site anyway. Any help would be much appreciated. Kenneth McLaws

Please send as much information as you can to service@instructables.com - dates, times, exact pages visited, browser being used, operating system being used, add-ons installed etc.

I try to open Instructables and I keep getting the virus warning. I try to exit and it won't let me, I have to close the whole window. I'm not tech savvy but I'm trying to learn, so if the lingo in my email is hard to understand, just ask and I'll try to explain. Kenneth McLaws

I've encountered it several times since Jan 1st.  Just hit it again 5 mins ago on the Hans Solo Carbonite Wooden Cabinet instructable.

It pulls up McAfee screens showing infections everywhere.  It pops up another alert screen from MICROSOFT or similar - all very real looking.   It also tries to prevent you from closing out the browsers, keeps poppingup new ones.  First time I was so startled I pulled the LAN cable out, power out, and popped the battery as quickly as I could.

I'll have to stop coming back to INSTRUCTABLES while the site is infected.
We just shut down yet another ad network and hour ago - can you let me know if it happens to you again?  Thanks!

I've had two assalts by" the computer is infected, then starts running
virus check," I tracked the site down and went back to it today, no problems yet. Enclosed is a picture of the site that gave me problems. NOTE;
this is a picture only!
