    I've just connected to the AA's routeplanner site and my anti virus (AVG) produced a full page banner telling me there was a virus on the page and it was unsafe.

    Spooky - I mean, it's the AA?

    It's being spooked by adverts that are served from or link to pages with malware on them - just had Ebay do it to me tonight.

    I also use AVG.
    You're not alone; it's done exactly the same to me on eBay, Hotmail and Pistonheads today...:confused:
