New Malware?
 
After I log in and get the main screen I get a small window that tells me that my computer is not running at full communication speed and to download this application and my speed will double. Yea right!:mad:

You can't close the window, so I just exit FitDay. It started last week, went away for a couple of days and has been back all this week. Have stopped using Fitday.

I assume the website has been hacked. Admin needs to get this fixed. This is, at least, the second time this has happened. The last time was the "Anti-Virus 2012."

Cheers,

Paul

Not getting other reports of this; most likely you have the malware on youir PC, and it's attached to a FD cookie. Run a malware scan and your AV program please.

I get this, too. It doesn't bother me too much because I know it's probably the malware I reported before, just a bit less conspicuous. A few times, I try to do something like log a food in fitday and I get flashing error messages that seem to match the typeface and typesize of this annoying malware.

It is definitely a problem. I have several two products running on my computer and they both address malware. Prevx and the Microsoft Security Essentials product. They both have been reliable - and actively scan, looking for 'bad guys.' I believe this is a variation of the awful malware that popped up here in the past (it doesn't show up anywhere else in my computer - this is a fitday specific thing). Other people experienced this in the past, the fitday administrators tried to address it. It's back, in a slightly different form.
