    I received a security alert from my security software, Microsoft Security Essentials that this site has been identified as a security risk.
    They indicated spyware, malware is being dropped on computers through this sight in an attempt to get personal information.

    I stopped accessing the sight on my main computer and am using a drone.

    Does anyone know what is going on?

    ElmerMudd, I have the same software you do and I am not experiencing the same problem you seem to be going through. Good luck figuring out the problem. :neutral:
