I sent a ticket in earlier for videos and the website stopping but my Anti-Virus statred detecting Rootkits and shut CR down ! So is the website infected or is it on purpose? Is the DRM invovled like the Sony BMG scandal?

Rootkit

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rootkit

Sony BMG copy protection rootkit scandal / Also known as DRM

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rootkit#Sony_BMG_copy_protection_rootkit_scandal

So since CR usse DRM I wonder if this a problem ??

BTW since any website can be hacked niwadays CR is not safe either especially after The DOS attack.

Given some of the issues I've seen you report elsewhere in this section, it seems more likely the issue is with your computer.

If you were a free user, I might chalk it up to the possibility of an infected ad, but the only place you could see one as a premium user should be on the home page. Malvertisers typically go for the cheap ads and don't splash out money for the higher cost ads when a small one will do their work just as well.

I've seen no reports on my computer, and yours is the first message I've noted thus far stating this.
