Happening now to multiple users.

To me, when using Chrome to open HowToGeek Forums' page.
Chrome gives me this message (but everything works fine with Firefox)
Scanned with MalwareBytes - nothing came up.

''Content from .qcksrv.com, a known malware distributor, has been inserted into this web page. Visiting this page now is very likely to infect your computer with malware.''

On a side note, this was interesting to witness.

Morning Ted, FF (v17), Palemoon (v15 64bit) and http://www.comodo.com/home/bro.....rowser.php

I don't really get on much with Chrome or variants of them

OK Thanks. I only use Chrome but seem to get on OK with it other than the adverts so just wondered what problems you were having. My brother is a fan of Fire Fox as well.

GS I have never heard of a BlackHawk browser. Will have a look out of interest.

It's not a bad browser, nothing special, but does the job when Chrome just won't :)
