    Odd. Are you sure it's coming from this site? I visit this site several times a day and I don't have that file any where.

    The name of the file itself is "Microsoft.wmf"?

    Yes that is the exact name of the file. IE stops the file from downloading as per my setup, and this happenens ramdomly. the next times it happens I will see where the file is comming from.

    I can guarantee that there is no code containing Microsoft.wmf in the code of this website. I shall also guarantee that there are no WMF's stored on the server.

    Just to check, as having googled it obviously brings up the wmf exploit posted recently, are you completely up to date - www.windowsupdate.com

    I always doubt it when its just one user affected, but it wouldn't suprise me.
