|I don't particularly want this forum to become a site for operating system issues as we all use so many and there are plenty of forums that do this better than I can (except I couldn't find any that mentioned the one below yet).
However I just want to report one that got through my VIRUS SYSTEM (AVAST) today and it NEARLY fooled me into pressing the DOWNLOAD button.
Basically it tells you your JAVA is out of date, the screen looks really realistic as if it is from JAVA but fortunately I Googled the URL before I went any further.
The URL to watch out for is:
For Information - I use WINDOWS 7 with the CHROME Browser.
Of course if MEMBERS disagree and want to use this forum to warn other collectors of potential issues - let me know and I can decide how to do something about it, but as I say there are more knowledgeable forums that deal with these issues.
