    LOL... did you upload any? If not then you probably don't have any on your website.

    Besides that realistically the only chance you would have for getting a virus or some other malicious code on your site is if you are running software that is using server side scripting such as a forum or allows uploads like a image gallery. In most cases if they are up to date they will have been patched for such exploits.

    You'll have to be a little more specific as to why you would think it might have virus.

    And it might help if we knew where your site was.

    Ok, I deleted the index page and made it again from scratch, the problem seemed to be sorted, but a few hours later when I went back on Mc Afee started showing warnings again. Is there any software or anyway to scan the web-site or the ftp-site?

    Unless you uploaded viruses on your site, there can't really be any viruses. I went there and got no warnings.

    "senwod": FYI- I just went to your site, too, and no warning appeared.

    okay, thanks Noyb and stantley for confirming that I'm not going slowly insane and that there is something triggering Anti-Virus software, I have found loads of info on the trojan and ways that it might of got there but has anyone got any ideas of how I'm going to get rid of it, if you can help and are ever in Ireland I'll buy you all a pint

    so the search continues for an online web scanner to scan a web-site or an ftp site, ATTENTION all software developers there could be a fortune to be made here. I am sure that somone out there must know of some way for me to find this virus on my site and how to get rid of it, instead of starting the site again from scratch

    "s": Have you thoroughly checked YOUR computer? Perhaps you should post a "Highjackthis" (HJT) scan on the Security Forum. Go there and you will find many references to using the HJT approach to finding malware that does not come to light with commonly used scanners.
