So I take it nobody is having this problem? I'm guessing this problem wasn't associated with this website since everybody would have experienced this.

I'm getting a "trojan horse" virus blocked when I log on from work.
I do not know what they are using there.

I need to find out what is causing this. I never use IE, only firefox, and I've never seen in type of blocker appear.

If it happens again today, I'll grab it for you. It does not happen every time.

I figured it out. The PM add on (popup) and the youtube re-write files here put an active content script on your hard drive (in your temp files folder). This isn't a security risk.

To correct this, go to internet options, then go to advanced, and under security decheck "allow active content to run in files on my computer"

If not, you have turned something on that isn't normally set.
