In case you were wondering about the pop-ups, it seems that my host's server has caught a trojan. It randomly adds a trojan downloader popup into the html of pages it serves. My host is aware of the problem and is currently trying to fix it. In the meantime, use a pop-up blocker.

Uodate: looks like it's been taken care of, but just in case I also added a workaround to block the script into all the main pages and all the forum pages.

Hmm... I just got the popup from the forum pages, so I'm not so sure if it works.

yeah, the problem is still there...but it didn't give me any pop-ups or run the code(you can see it in the source, but it's not executed as javascript.)) after i used the workaround. i see that your profile is set to use the subSilver theme...i only 'fixed' it for the Fission theme, i will now edit the other themes accordingly...although, i have it set to force fission....*doubts it will do anything* try clearing your cache. the pages are very similar, so it might decide not to re-download the whole thing?

actually, i just thought of a case where it wouldn't work....since i placed the tag in the overall_footer.tpl file, it's appended to all the main forum pages, but it's not applied to the redirect page after posting, i don't think....checking into this now

Code:
<noscript>
to the end of the line before your
Code:
</body>
this disables the javascript that is appended to the end of the html when the virus does its thing.
