Sounds like you got problems unrelated to the forum issues...

Download SpyBot S&D and run that.

I havn't had this - though am on a mac.

It would be difficult for a poster to do this however if you noticed it was limited to specific threads in this forum, I would take a closer look to see if there has been any malicious activity.

Often the modern browsers block sites that are affected so would be certainly interested if this was specific for this site rather than a an infected computer.
