    I just had the same thing happen. I did a re-boot after closing it all down. I didn't download, and it's not showing up now.

    Got it too on my work PC. Not cool.

    Hope the site mods fix this ASAP.

    Thank goodness my home puter is a Mac.

    I'm getting it and I use Firefox, but for me it just pops up a Java splash window and downloads the file to Windows Media Player, although it doesn't play. I'm ignoring it for now, but thanks for bringing it up so the admins can look into it.

    If you have an antivirus program, I REALLY suggest running a FULL computer scan because that might be some bad juju you just downloaded.

    If you don't have an AV program download a free one like AVG and run a scan, that's what I use.

    I am using Vista and Windows Explorer and am getting the request for Windows Media Player. I have been hitting ignore. I did a reboot and the problem continues.

    I'm using chrome and when I hit the site, it was automatically popping up a java splash screen, then downloading a php to the desktop. Also, Microsoft security essentials warned me of a trojan:

    There is definitely something going on. My virus blocker stops something, but the screen flashes.
