Seems like Popfly automagically figured out that I don't have Silverlight installed. But when I click da button to install it my anti-vious software says it has a virus.Any thoughts

As long as download is coming from Microsoft's website and is digitally signed by Microsoft, you can be sure that the download package is legitimate and okay to install. You can also go to http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/downloads.aspx and download Silverlight directly.

You'll need to download the Silverlight 1.0 Beta.

Same story...

LOL

Never quits does it

Anyways, I aborted my zero tolerance policy for once ..Smile, and actually read the warning LOL

And all its saying is that it seems suspicious.

Maybe I'll get around to it later...

Got enough things to do for a while.

(...at least until midnight anyways LOL)

Thanx again

My anti-virus software detected the same thing. While I know MS would not put a virus in their product (it would be slightly counter productive) I am concerned that Silverlight is interacting with something in IE 6 to create a virus like glitch.

Is this possible

Don't suppose you could post what the make and version of your virus scanner and any other information that it displays such as the type of virus it thinks it is.

Thanks!
