Two nights in a row I've been browsing the Recent Topics page only for my Java icon to pop up followed by Windows Media Player opening and asking me if I wanted to run something, being computer savvy I clicked no and closed WMP and following that nothing seems to happen.

I've done thorough Malware scans and everything is clear but why is this happening on ATS? I haven't experienced it whilst on any other websites. I've looked for a thread on the topic but can't fnd anything.

Running XP/Firefox all software is up to date as possible.

Have you been scanning your computer in safe mode? Or regular windows?

If it's in regular windows your wasting your time

It's probably a cookie thing, just clear your browser cache and all that good stuff and you should be fine.

On a daily basis I clean my Internet cache, temporary files, lost file fragments, orphaned registry keys, deleted e-mail messages and other non-essential files through McAfee. Then I use CCleaner. And last Free Up Disc Space.

It keeps my computer clean and I have never had that problem you mentioned. Maybe you should clean up your computer on a regular basis.
