    Dunno. Norton says it blocked a high risk intrusion attempt, A .PDF file or something, and then immediately after Acrobat tries to open a PDF file. I just immediately closed Acrobat. No ill effects that I'm aware of. I basically just closed it before it had a chance to load, I guess. I don't know crap about computers, but I do know a "High risk intrusion" is not something I want to give half a chance to open itself.

    THis has happened 3 times to me, all on this site.

    It's not the scoreboard, I never have the scoreboard open.

    Why do you think it takes so long to close Acrobat mike?

    Have you ever used it and accepted the license agreement, or have you never viewed a PDF before?

    Do you have the status bar enabled in your browser?

    Can you read at the bottom of your browser what is being loaded, and does it eventually load something from Statbeast even if you have the scoreboard closed?

    Neither do I, yet like I said I had the problem for was the scoreboard. Ask HH...he remembers, I had several conversations with him regarding it.

    when I reset my computer, it reset my office and my acrobat, so luckily, they don't open, it just tries and tries to open and after awhile I can just close the tab that it is trying to open the pdf file in.

    I don't know what that means mike.

    How do you "reset" your computer?

    Are you picking it up and placing it in another spot?

    Again....not a 100% sure but I never had the Adobe problem here until the scoreboard got apparently tried to use adobe to open the program and would freeze my computer and eventually close the window. Haven't had any problem lately though.

    When you see the redirect for you should see the small banner at the top of the page with the "skip this ad" button to the right. These are the full page ads that the site has. These are supposed to show up once every six hours and will show up more if your broswer's cookies settings are set to not allow cookies.

    I'm not getting ads, but it is a very raw version of the site. The whole thing is white and just has links to the threads posted on it.

    I have been logged in for 20 minutes now and have gotten the full page adds from Deminology and some other place no less than 15-20 times. I can't even function from one page to another and it's very irritating.

    And if it's a cookie issue, I shouldn't have to clear my cookies every time I visit the site or every other day. It was just done.
