    Anyone know what this is all about nod32 just block it when I clicked on a link to a website? I got this message saying it was blocked just wondering what it was?

    Time Module Object Name Threat Action User Information
    8/21/2006 10:45:33 AM IMON file http://missing.*******.com/ JS/AdWare.SearchPage.A virus Connection terminated

    I blocked out the website name above because I don't want to post a direct link to it.

    That's just the IMON module doing it's job. Aparently there was a special (javascript?) file in the address you clicked on that may otherwise have gotten onto your PC. So it's good for you that NOD32 just blocks it since nobody wants JS/AdWare.SearchPage.A virus on their PC :)
    Very considerate, saves the mods having to do it for you since it's in the TOS for posting links to potential malware :D

    Cheers :)
