Hi Blackswan,
Am recently getting this message off AVG every time I logon
What message? Was there meant to be an attachment? What's "AVG" in this context? I can't quite parse "...getting this message off AVG...".
but is this site usually https ? not anymore ?
We have made not changes to the forum, so it has been this way since (yikes!) 2002.

Do you have some kind of screen shot? Does this crop up when you view the OutBack forum? Any particular posts? Page? Subforum? When you do a particular thing?

If that's the problem, you'll still get it. The forum still has no certificate, it uses HTTP rather than HTTPS and browsers more and more flag that as "scary".

I'm more interested in the AVG/Infection messages/screen shots.
