    Scott can you look into this? It appears to be an ad link virus that is on Satelliteguys. I searched for it on my computers and find nothing. I tested on other forums and nothing.
    Test words:
    TV
    Microsoft
    antivirus

    There are ways to remove it if it shows up.

    Perhaps it was intentional? I check the link to see if it links to viglink before I click on it.

    I have to say that I'd rather not have links show up in messages that I have inserted relevant links in.

    Not anymore. I stopped using the classic view as suggested and all is well now. I tested all the others and only classic had the VIGLink benign virus.
