Hello
A strange thing just happened. I visit a news/current events website regularly, and went to click on it, but was forced to download a file before I could get to the site.
I downloaded the file to a floppy. The file name is part of the website's name, it's size is 41KB. I run Win 98 se.

Can anybody explain this? Virus maybe?

thanks

What is the web site, what is the file name?

Frankly unless it is a "macromedia" install, I would not install it or continue to visit the site unless it is well known and trusted.
