    Default Archery Talk Virus?

    Anyone know what's going on with AT? My anti-virus flags when I begin to sign in. Haven't went there for 2 or 3 days. Had 2 bows listed, but not worth computer damage.

    Mods- please notify me if this is in the wrong area. Thank you.

    Admin has been working on it. They already submitted a reindex to Google which should clear things up. It a lot of pages so it will probably take some time.

    If anybodies still having that Google warning pop up. Just clear the cache and cookies for AT in all the browsers you've used to access AT. Shut down and restart your PC. You should be good to go. They fixed the issue a couple days ago. I did as they stated and I'm back to normal.

    Funny, I never had a problem. They must have cleared it before I signed on. Seems like I miss all the fun by spending so much time on here.

    You didn't miss much Barry. The warning said Archerytalk had viruses. I knew that for a long time, just talk to someone on there you'll feel like you have been infected.

    Couldn't tell you the last time I visited AT ... yet it has been a little while since I've poked my head in here too lately
