Hi Goeff.

For clarification, nobody's machine is infected!  The problem that Norton 
shows a warning window that  John Clahr's website  is 
infected.  We believe it is NOT.  It seems to be a problem with Norton's 
installation of their Toolbar and Norton Safe Web settings.  Disabling the 
latter removes the popup and the site cause NO problems with normal a/v
