This site is a spyware trigger

    For the last few days, everytime I've been on SportsJournalists.com, my computer's anti-spyware program (PC Cilin) says there is spyware on this site.
    How did that happen and can it be fixed?

    Possibly unrelated, but for the past four days or so the site has been CRAWLING for me. I have to click on each thing three times, and wait 10-15 seconds for the page to load.

    Webby says he hasn't noticed anything and hasn't gotten any other complaints. Am I the only one? I've run my Spybot and my AdAware, both say I'm clean. And I have AVG installed.

    No problems for me, but I'm on a Mac. Spyware usually isn't interested in us.

    IJAG, did you install the latest updates of AdAware and Spybot? I only ask becuase I know a lot of people who download them, never installe the updates and then miss a ton of the spyware on their comp.

    Personally, no problems with this sites.

    I've had it happen when tried to click on a link from this site. But I have PC Cillin also. Maybe it's just sensitive.

    No problems here in terms of speed.

    Only problem I have is if my cursor is pointed at one of the banner ads, I can't scroll with my mouse button. But I just have to move the cursor off the ad and it's fine.

    Every time I run them, I check for updates. I should be up to speed on those.
