    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

    can you post the website address?

    loaded normally for me, no d/l required

    good idea to d/l to a floppy - i'd ignore it unless the site asks you to d'l it it each time you go there

    interesting site
