  1. Please let us know what page you are visiting when it happens. There are spammers who post smilies (or even transparent images) here which silently cause your browser to download an affiliate cookie, and this might be the cause of that warning. We want to get rid of those spammers :)
  2. It has improved this morning but still does it when I click on "Official IB Thread Discussion"
    EI loads the pages without errors. It just takes a little longer.
  3. It might be from one of those ads...
  4. It might have something to do with that Vaio laptop add popping up in the forums. It covers the top part of the thread title and username, and no way of closing it.

    Edit: think its in all forums, comes by within a minute.
  5. ctbaars,

    I believe the issue is with an image and link that you are posting on the site from the site ***. I have removed that image from your posting on the IB thread. However, clearly, Google thinks planetsmilies has viruses on it. Therefore, anytime a person posts an image from or link to that site, Chrome will give a warning. Could you please refrain from doing that?

    Thank you!

    EDIT: Actually, it appears an admin has already blocked that site, so now future posts can contain that URL. Therefore, there won't be a problem in the future.
