    whenever i open a thread started by Amber24 or go into a thread where she has posted, my computer tells me there is a high risk that an unknown source is trying to access my computer and then it shuts me out of TPF for 20 minutes.

    if i block her, will that make it stop? i dont want to put her on my ignore list because i like her pictures and ive got nothing against her, but being unable to access the forum is frustrating.

    any suggestions?

    Remove whatever virus that has infected your PC.

    I doubt it has anything to do with a certain members posts, just something goofy going on behind the scenes

    I'm going to guess it is an issue with your computer. I have no problems at all when opening her threads...perhaps you need to adjust some security settings?

    norton pops up and says there is a high risk alert and its blocking something from accessing my system. and then i cant use tpf.

    the scan is complete and nothing was suspect. im going to go back into a thread of her's soon.

    im scared. lol.

    I used to have Nortons but found it to be a pain. I've been using a free program called AVG anti virus for the last 2 years and find it works perfectly... and really, its free. I also have no problems with Amber's threads / posts by the way. Best of luck getting it fixed.

    I second AVG Free (they have a pay version as well, so make sure you go with avgfree). It works great and it doesnt bog down your system like norton does. I dont really use my pc anymore, but it still works fine with avg. Give it a shot.

    I also recommend running your antivirus in safe mode when you have a big problem.
