I don't think your original post accused RZ of anything, always good to bring that kind of thing to their attention (your PC was clearly infected at the time).
To be fair, Fri. night/early AM Sat., I DID visit a MySpace site and I remember back when I used to actually use MySpace I had a few minor problems with some prog. "appearing" to be doing a "scan" and finding "problems" - though it never appeared to have ever infected my computers or anything. But, when I visited that MS site, that was the 1st time I had been on MS in a LONG time (I long ago gave up on/quit using MS as I just think it completely went down the crapper with all the changes they made in the last yr. or two, plus Fbook is just so much better for that kind of thing). I just happened to remember that I had visited that MS page very briefly so it's VERY possibly I picked it up from there. The only other site I visited previous to that happening was my Facebook profile, and though I don't think it's likely, it COULD have been picked up there as well. I HAVE read of others complaining about picking up malware via Facebook as of late.
So yeah, I def. was not blaming Redszone as I actually thought it was very unlikely that I would pick up malware from here, but I DID think it was kind of ironic that other users began getting those warning msgs. at that very same range in time.
And no, I'm nearly positive that I did NOT click on any of the ads on this site, if I did do so, it was by complete accident and I didn't notice doing so.
Oh well, hopefully I finally got rid of all the offenders on my PC and this whole mess is over with for me. I do look forward to reading what Boss-Hog gets reported back to him concerning the site hosts malware scan. Hopefully it is indeed nothing.
The ONLY problem I have personally ever experienced w/RedsZone is it does tend to go VERY slowly quite often as of late (not sure why, this just started within the past month or two for me personally, main problem being that it made it very difficult to participate in a timely manner to "game threads" - by the time I could get my post up, the play was long over and my reply was about as worthless as could be
Oh well, like you said, it's prob. absolutely nothing ado w/this site and I most almost assuredly already infected.
