  • Picking up viruses from this site.

    Three times in as many days I have picked up Trojan:JS/Redirector.CI from this site. No harm was done since my virus protection stopped it and allowed me to delete it everytime, but still it's a concern. It has to be one of the ads, but I have no clue which one. My protection software locks the page up before I can see which one is doing it.

    What AV are you using? It is likely a false positive, your AV software vendor should be aware of the issue if it is. If not, go over to the DSL Cable VOIP Security Satellite Fiber News Tips Reviews Community Tools - security forums, post a message about it, and if you wait, a poster named Cudni (or something like that) will help you out. Chances are, someone over there will be able to help you rather quickly.

      It's possible it's a false positive. I've use Microsoft Security Essentials for awhile now and have had no problems until this week.

        site problems
        by RamDez
        Sorry all,

        I made the silly mistake of "upgrading" the site.

        Some of you might have noticed the lines of text above the forum and home page, I hope to resolve those issues soon but the site its self should still function fine.

        Joined this site after getting banned from Realramsfans

        My name over there was Bulger2Holt and people would laugh at me because I hated Bulger. So I changed it to something like Bulger2Bench and they banned me for rules violation. Not sure why, but here I am.

        if you are having site issues

        1. Site access problems and fix methods, troubleshooting guide
        Sometimes members may get messages like "security token was missing" or other glitches with our site software, your PC/Mac, or your internet connection.
        Fundamentally the cause of most problems is usually corrupt data in the cache/cookies or your site session.
        The following process will fix 99% of these issues.
        1. Logout of
        2. Clear your cache
        3. Delete any AP cookies (or all cookies)
        4. Close the browser
        5. Open the browser
        6. Login to AP
        It sounds like black magic - and it is to a point - but this process should sort most problems.
        This process also applies to issues with other sites.
        If the above process does not solve your problem you may wish to try the following additional steps:
        9. Shutdown your PC/Mac
        10. Restart your router/modem
        11. Restart your PC/Mac
        In addition to the above you may find that browser plugins and extensions can cause issues.
        Try temporarily disabling plugins to see if things improve.
        Also ensure you have the latest version of your browser installed.
        1. A few other things that can help.
        1. CCleaner - Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download Ccleaner is a good way to clear the cache
        2. Security settings.
        Settings, especially in IE, can be set too high and if you don't allow cookies from St. Louis Rams at the site may have issues.
        3. If you use NoScript or similar plugins in Firefox you may have issues as the site does use Javascript
