Virsus

While watching American Idol on Thursday my laptop became infected with a trojan horse one of the Win32/a???? strains. I know it was not Megavideo, I have used that link many times, which leaves Divx, Ninjavideo or one other with a name something like SeeTeeve. I know that you caution folks not to download which I do not, if a link won't open I move on to the next. I hope you can find out where it's coming from and block it. My laptop is completely fried, this virsus could not be cleaned by my virsus protection, I searched it and deleted it as recommended and the computer worked fine until is was rebooted. Now I'm looking at $$$ to get it fixed.

Hi Laura, thanks for the report - can you let us know which episode you were trying to watch so we can make sure to check all those episode links and ban any site causing these virus problems? It'd be great to get it removed and banned asap! Thanks!

Laura, you're not the only one. I've been getting AV virus blocks on Sidereel for at least the last 2 weeks. I'd like to blame a link but seems to originate from the Sidereel link page prior to me clicking on a link.

Though I've seen and expect viruses from unknown links that I click on I don't expect them from Sidereel directly. What's up Sidereel?

Laura, can you check to make sure your virus issue is definitely directly on SideReel instead of from another site you've opened? Also, can you let us know what AntiVirus program you're using? Thanks!
