Warning - I just got a virus alert from here

I opened ML's post on hardwood floors and that prompted the warning.

It's script/exploit and you can read more about it on AVG's site here.

Anyone else getting this?

Yes, I am...and this happened a few months ago, too. I think GW is playing with the pop up ads again...and that seems to trigger the AVG alerts. I hope they fix it, soon!

I have yet to get one. But someone on the Hosta Forum got it, so far no one else there has. Run your virus scan if you get it again.

On the computer forum, they say it was a false positive and it has been fixed.

Oldgardener- You're right! I'm so glad to be rid of that red AVG warning, constantly popping up.
