    Virus from Hawkeye Nation

    Just a warning: followed a link from a thread on this site a few days ago to Hawkeye Nation, and AVG opened up a virus warning. Ended up with the "Google redirect virus." Maybe others have to. If you have, I had to use Norton Power Eraser to get rid of it.

    Just a heads up. Last time I go to that site.

    UPDATE: looks like I'm late to the game. They already know all about it over there, evidently.

    Maybe they need a new server group.

    I had a warning last week from there also.

    How did you know that they know about it unless you went back and looked on the site?

    I Googled "Hawkeye Nation virus" while looking for a fix, and the Google search synopsis shows up a few pages from their site. It has only a few sentences in the summary.

    But I didn't actually click on the link and visit the site.

    And this is why we must always practice safe browsing.

    So THAT's where the virus came from? I reamed my kids out for that. Cost me 80 bucks to get my PC cleaned.

    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    Happened to me too. The Google redirect virus is annoying

    Yeah, because nothing like that has ever happened here.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.
