I have tried a couple of times now to get onto Dragons in the attic, as they went down for a while. Now they are back there seems to be something amiss. For about 3 days now this is what has happened ....The page takes ages to load up, with the sound burlting out that the computer aint happy at all, I have now ran a virus check and this is what has come up

Virus found HTML framer
source dragonsintheattic_net[...c:\Documents and settings\my name\Local settings\temporary Internet Files\content.IE5\DSD75YOJ\dragonsintheattic_net[1].htm

Is this going to damage my comp Rich? Still running AVG so hopes that gets rid, but am worried in the meantime.
I dare not go back on the site again now, I need this comp for my college work and that has to come first.

Whats happened and why do you have any idea Rich?

NO THIS IS ONLY A MINOR TROJEN. AVG STOPS THIS VIRUSWITH A PAGE CANNOT BE DISPLAYED AVAST TELLS YOU IT IS A VIRUS
YOU CAN REMOVE THIS EASILY BY CLICKING ON INTERNET EXPLORER AND THEN CLICKING TOOL INTERNET OPTIONS AND DELETING THE TEMPORARY FILES FROM THERE
AVAST IS A GOOD ANTI VIRUS TOO AND CAN BE DOWNLOADED FROM http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html
IF YOU INSTALL IT REMOVE ANY OTHER ANTIVIRUS PROGRAMS FROM YOURCOMPUTER BY GOING INTO THE CONTROL PANEL AND ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS

Thanks Rich will have a look and get it sorted.
I knew something was wrong as I tried a couple of times and kept having to re boot. I kept clearing my cookies and temp files, but it just makes me worried it was one that would go deep into the comp and end up with me having no computer.

I never had the problem that Di had, but I am glad that you have said that Avast is a good anti virus, Stuart set me up with that one over a month ago and I have had no problems with it, other ones I have tried have always interfered with the other workings, but this one hasn't.

It has scared the living daylights out of me though, when it has updated itself and my volume has been turned up. :laugh

Thanks for the info. xx

I have just googled dragons in the attic as I deleated it from my favs ( in my panic mode) , and google have put a warning there

Welcome to the home of Pocket Dragons!
This site may harm your computer.
When I clicked on the link that said This site may harm your compter it seems google are trying to protect users, here have a look promise its not a virus its just an information page from google. I knew something wasn't quite right

http://www.google.co.uk/support/bin/answer.py?answer=45449&topic=360&hl=en&sa=X&oi=malwarewarninglink&resnum=1&ct=help

I hope this can be sorted out for the collectors that use this site too

I am getting this message when I go into the site.

This Account Has Been Suspended
Please contact the support department as soon as possible, and please have your site name ready.

It doesn't say anything about halming the computer for me, not sure if that is a good or bad thing really.

Nah what I mean Ali is go onto google put in dragons in the attic in the search bar and there it tells you just above the link in red. I have never seen a warning like that on google. If you press the link for that warning bit as it is a separate link to the site, it explains why google have taken the step to warn folk. Dita can request this to be removed once they have sorted out the prb.
Weird because they went down for a while not long ago and I have a feeling they changed servers. I then noticed a problem when i went in as I heard this warning noise, like I had pressed a wrong key. I then couldn't load up any page off the net after and kept having to re boot.
Its a shame really because Dita and Heaven are the only real active sites on the net for Pocket dragons.
