    It will also show in your Favorite List. If you have this site labeled as "MOA Forum", you can have a custom icon in front of MOA Forum.

    I take it you have Norton on one computer and McAfee on another computer???
    As mentioned earlier, it does not work well to have two anti virus programs running on one computer.

    So you just click on Login and you see the messages? Which Login are you talking about? I have Google Chrome which I rarely use so when I go to the MOA forum with it, I appear as a guest with a Login button on the top right. If I click on that Login button, I don't see any unusual messages. That takes me to a screen that requires me to entry my username and password. There is another Login button on that screen. Which of the two buttons are you referring to?
    I have the BMW MOA saved as a 'favorite,' and when I click on that, it gives me the MOA home page, with the log-on in the upper left. However, immediately upon displaying the 'home page,' a virus warning apears, and then again when I get the 'sign in' page and hit 'log on' for a second time to access the Forum.

    Sending you a PM.

    You guys already have the appropriate favicon.. it's the one used for the main (non-forum) site and looks like this:

    I'm just asking that you use it for the forum pages, too. It probably means somehow telling vbulletin to not use it's built in favicon.

    That is obviously not a link to an MOA page. The question is from where is it coming? Instead of using your favorite, click on the address bar and type in www.bmwmoa.org and see if you get the same warning. I'm wondering if your favorite got modified behind the scene as part of the original site problems.

    I just noticed when I use Internet Explorer I have the Globe next to my bookmark/favorite and next to the MOA home page address.
    When using Google Chrome, I only get the default VB favicon in both places.

    It does show on my "bookmarked" (home page) where I start from, list but doesn't show here on the forum pages- I don't know why. I know it does change as when we in the worst of the Virus problems, it went red as a warning. It's not something that I am generally focused on. Gary

    Same here. Like I mentioned earlier I didn't even notice the favicon had changed

    Kaspersky is a brand name like Norton and McAfee. Sometimes people will buy, say a Norton program, and have a free version of McAfee from their internet service provider- this sometimes has two programs bumping into each other. Gary

    Favicon

    I found out from a software guy that the favicon should be stored in one of the main folders for the website on the webserver. It will take someone with the "executive washroom key" to make the change.

    My Solution

    Was getting the same message and decided to install Sandboxie. Now I can get on without any warnings and not have to worry about any malicious software. Just my 2 cents and you know what that's worth.
    Have fun & Ride safe, Anthony

    Kurt - I tried your suggestion (or Gary's - losing track over who is suggesting what to me these days!) of accessing the Forum directly.

    I did and no virus warnings from Kaspersky - the 'trojans' must lurk in the MOA server itself?

    Problem is, I need the home page, flea market, etc. as well - so not out of the woods yet.

    Good Luck.

    OK Kevin, it's info like this that narrows down where to look for the problem. Chances are that the warning is "stuck" in Kaspersky's warning alert log and that threat has passed. The IT guys did a great job of clearing the warnings off the Google search engine, hopefully that's what we need to do here. Gary

    The Flea Market is on the forum, so you don't need the Home Page for that. But if the Home Page has access info that you need, then that's an issue. We're still putting together a list of things that must be checked out.
