Something attacking my computer??

Okay, recently when I browse Zoo Station my anit virus software will pop up and tell me an attempt to attack my computer was blocked. This happens most often when I click on the Lost thread.

Could there be something in the forum doing this?
Is it just me?
When this happens I can't access Interference unless I restart my computer. My virus scans are up to date and I have a spyware sweeper so my computer is pretty clean. Next time it happens I'll post the 'location' of the 'attacker.'

This has happened to me before but not in Zoo Station. I put a firewall up and it stopped doing it altogether.

The same thing happens to me, only in the Lost thread..that's why I don't go to that thread anymore

I have a firewall so it's not that, my scans and spyware stuff are all up to date as well

Most likely it's someone's image posted in a post or a signature... which actually is able to set a cookie, etc... but is setting off your software to think its an 'attack'.

I need to know:
Are you using XP, 2000, Linux, Mac, 98, ME?
What browser?
What Antivirus software do you have?
What Firewall software do you have?
What is the URL of the page where this happens?
What is the EXACT message your warning gives?

It happens on the computer I use that has XP, Norton Anti-virus and firewall, w/ Mozilla Firefox. I use the Microsoft Security Center firewall too

It has happened on several pages of the Lost thread for me, so I don't have an exact URL. I was able to post in and read in that thread until the problem started, so whenever my last post in that thread was would indicate.

I have gotten a few messages about attacks but I didn't associate it w/ that thread since like I said I avoid it now.

But it is the same thing WildHoneyAlways mentioned, I can't access Interference after trying to view that thread w/ out restarting my computer-I tested it today and it happened again, but I didn't get any warning about attacks, etc.

First off, running TWO firewall applications could be causing some serious problems. Today, as soon as you visited that thread... it blocked all of Interference?

never run more than one firewall or more than one anti-virus software at a time.

Running more than one anti-virus at a time CAN actually destroy your files/operating system/etc.

actually that's wrong, not two firewalls on the same computer

It only happens to me on the Lost thread- as soon as I go to that thread at all, afterwards I cannot access Interference without restarting my computer. It never happens at all in any other thread in that forum that I read/post in or in any thread in any other forums here. So yes as soon as I visited that thread yesterday I had to restart my computer to access Interference again.

I've combed through that entire thread looking for anything... image, script, cookie, etc... that would cause some adverse reaction by firewall software, and at the same time is unique to that thread.... I cant find ANYTHING.

I would strongly urge you to contact the company for support which makes your firewall software.

The Lost thread strikes again.

When I go to the last page I can't access interference anymore. Here's what my antivirus popups say:



and



The second box says that I will not be able to access interferencef for 30 minutes.

I do not have 2 firewalls running. I'm running Norton antivirus 2006.

Any suggestions?
