Yes! and then got 2 different malware thingies that now come up on my personal laptop when ever I come to PBS.  I emailed the site owners, but all I got was a reply that it had nothing to do with the site- it was the fault of my computer! (Incidently the same thing happened on two other computers I tried - so no, not my computer) They also said it had to be me because no one else had complained!

What's the date on your computer? The certificate expires on 12/5/2009, so if your computer has the wrong day or year, it might think it's already expired. You can see the certificate by going to the login page https://secure.paperbackswap.com/members/login.php and then clicking on the lock icon in your browser. If you use Firefox, click on View Certificate from that window and you can see all the details.

I am not getting anything related to malware. If you have installed any 3rd party add-ons to your browsers, that's probably what is triggering your anti-virus or malware protection software.

My daughter was on my computer last night and changed the date to Dec. 31st. So I restarted and everything is good. It was weird though I couldnt get into my online banking nothing was really working smooth.
