    Yeah, occasionally the front page of the forum doesn't work for me or a page will just refuse to load, but this only happens at my home computer (must be cookie related). I can get around it by just using my history to get to the appropriate section.

    I was waiting for that server switch or whatever, but since someone else pointed out the same thing, I might as well add a little.

    It's being worked on as I type, so I hear from Jason. A little more patience please, it's huge site with lots of members and so much to mess up if done wrong.

    Hope it'll be fixed soon. I've been getting Avast warnings for the past 1,5-2 months as well, but I have been able to use the site normally.

    Yeah, I've been getting it a while :/

    Heads up for Avast users: If you right click the little icon by the clock on your bottom-bar thingie, you can turn Avast onto silent/gaming mode. Still block stuff without the pop-up or audio.

    I've just updated to Windows 7, IE 9 and Avast after having nothing but problems with viruses for months, now come back on here and I'm also getting Avast throwing a dicky fit, seems to be stopping me getting into the forums unless I log off...enter the forums and then log back on. It keeps telling me it's an HTML Script inf..

    I can guarantee you that the admins are working to improve the forums.
    This new problem was a sudden blow and major setback to what has been
    a long negotiation process to change servers. The amount of information
    that has to be transferred, coded, tested, etc...is staggering. The forums
    are remaining in the current state only because our admins are super
    busy working on new build and have been doing a lot of troubleshooting.

    I'm right there with you guys in experiencing these hassles as are all the
    mods and admin. Believe me, nobody wants to see progress more than
    the staff, our workload has doubled since all this went down. Just weather
    this storm with us. We appreciate all of your patience and value you as
    members of this site.

    Coming as a moderator from another site I understand the pressure you're all under especialy as youre changing servers, hope you manage to get to the bottom of this promptly though as my life's just not the same without my daily dose of CA.

    Thanks, but its the admin who really deserve the sympathy. I'm just a grunt
    that handles spammers and trouble makers. They do all that -and- keep the
    machine rolling on top of it, all without pay in their spare time.

    So third attempt. CA will allow viewing though chrome but it is super buggy. Win 7 Firefox avast combo doesn't work. Chrome allows no posting. Am posting from my phone.

    Get better soon. I miss you

    Cheerio

    That's odd. I don't doubt what you are saying, but Win 7 64 bit Firefox + avast + Win defender works for me.

    edit: To clarify. My antivirus does not go nuts, but the site kicks me out randomly and also
    prevents me from doing some of my usual duties without taking other measures and doing
    workarounds.

    I get tired, and simply turning off my avast every time i am entering CA website.

    Other than warning did anyone noticed any real threat?

    Site still isnt working.
    I can view picks on the front page but cannot access the forums. In fact will be interested to see if this post goes through. I gained access of this page via my email notification link.

    You can doubt what I am writing but my intention is to help you get a great site up and running short of fixing the code myself because I hate web work

    I hope someone will post an all clear here when the site is fixed.
    Cheers
    and thanks for all the fish.
