    We have cleared the blacklist and Google has scanned the site with no signs of infection so we should be good to go. The life support is the members. What do we need to bring it back to life?

    That's a good question. I really don't know why the old forum look/form/function was "Better" or perhaps it was just a critical mass of users that made it more compelling to visit and partake in etc. The forum is such a valuable resource to VX owners and created a tight sense of community. The FB group has taken the flow of VX info but as a forum it just really lacks in content. If we could increase the usage here perhaps we could meet that critical mass again. This will take a concerted effort among a group of core users. I fear if the effort is not taken or fails to increase traffic substantially the forum will fail with it.
    Agree? Disagree? Willing to make the effort? Do you think it's worth it?

    Thanks for bringing the site backup as quickly as you did! I haven’t been on the site that long, or even owned my VX that long. I would hate to loose such an invaluable resource. Thanks again!

    The how to section was incredibly helpful. It would be great if that can be revived.

    Your computer is almost certainly the problem for that issue...not this website. Try another anti-virus and do a boot-scan (if you haven't done either already).

    It's not. It's just this website. And the 2nd time I click on a link to here, it works fine. Plus, I'm not the only person who has these issues.

    p.s.
    My internet security suite is always up to date. I am very meticulous about the health of my computers.

    Just FYI, I checked with the guys at NetCom (guys in charge of army network). The filestore thing is the reason this site is now blocked on all DOD computers. At least according to the guy I talked too. I figured once the site was good with google it would be good with them too. Nope.

    I'm having the same issues with myfilestoredotcom redirects. Regardless of where I'm coming from. I've clicked on links from facebook, google and even manually typed the forum address and it would randomly redirect to myfilestore. When closing the tab/browser and trying it again, it would come to the forums as normal. Googling "myfilestore redirect vbulletin", it seems this is a pretty common issue with plugin exploites and/or sql injections.
