Just thought I'd let everyone know, there is a virus coming from GADV.com that is trying to access my computer. Luckily I have Norton and it has caught and blocked the virus several times, but I just wasn't sure if Mods or members were aware of this. Not sure if its just my computer, or if its an overall site problem. Hopefully nobody is affected by this!!

I have MSE and I haven't seen anything. Did you get the notification on the main forums page or in a specific thread?

Avast was giving me a popup every time I went to the main forum page as well, only that page though. I just assumed it was Avast being wacky but maybe not.

The site has been slower than normal for me lately. I know there was a thread about this in August but I can't find it because the using the search causes Chrome to timeout, so I just used Safari and it's just loading and loading and loading.

At this point we should just rename this topic to "Post Complaints Here", :P .

We believe there is something messed up with the website section of the site which hasn't been active in over a year but the forums should be perfectly fine. If you come to the forums try just typing gadv.com/forums to directly come here rather than gadv.com and being redirected here. If you are still getting virus alerts when typing gadv.com/forums please let me know. We are working to correct the issue its just that the people whom have the password to the main site are no longer very active in the community....none-the-less it will be fixed eventually but in the meantime please just type gadv.com/forums ;)

Avast says that the gadv.com is infected with "JS:Redirector-ABU[Trj]". I would think loading a full pre-infection backup of the main site would fix the problem.
