Try it now--that pic was an embedded image, could be the reason, so I removed it. Let me know if it still says malware. And any details re it.

Yep that fixed it. I couldn't see what was causing the problem since my antiv blocked it. Happy New Year !

Thanks for the heads up--I saved the pic and reloaded it directly to the forum, shouldn't cause a problem now since its not embedded. But if it does, let me know.
