Every time I have tried to open Home Page of Happier Abroad, my virus software blocks my attempts and warns of a trojan horse. I can get on other pages though.

Is anyone else having this same issue?

Can you tell me exactly what your antivirus program says? I will try to look into it. The home page has been shortened with a lot less ads, per the recommendation of an expert webmaster, so it should be simpler to load up now.

The usual homepage has been gone for several days. This is the message I get when I go to it:

Today at the mall, when I was testing the web browsing capabilities of a cell phone I was interested in, I tried to go to the home page here and got the message someone posted above. Dang.

I think I might know what happened. A few days ago I updated the home page, but not the rest of the pages. In doing so, during the upload of the home page files, some virus might have found a way to get through there, since my computer still seems to have a virus that the virus scanners can't find and only occassionally flags. It seems that different viruses are leaking into my computer, possibly through my internet connection. I have no idea how or how to stop it. Even if my antivirus programs cleans the computer of viruses, somehow more are coming in through the internet. So something in my computer might be hijacked. And it's probably related to why the home page is down.

Anyway, I will try exporting the home page files to my computer first and then uploading them from there. I hope that solves the problem.

That's weird. I reuploaded the home page but it still doesn't work. However, when you go to http://www.happierabroad.com/index.php then it DOES work, but http://www.happierabroad.com does not work! Strange. This is unprecedented.

Momopi, any idea what's wrong?

I'll ask an expert webmaster I know about this.

Both links work OK for me. I assume you have not changed your webserver directory index settings with your web host?

I guess it works now. I reuploaded all the main page files and images, and that fixed the problem. I guess there was a glitch caused by uploading only the home page without the rest. Maybe some tiny difference messed up the home page. Weird.

Rock, are you still getting virus warnings on the home page?
