    What is the SVG control module?

    Everytime I log onto FW a message pops up at the bottom asking me to allow this. I always close because allowing 'stuff' onto a computer has usually proven to create problems.
    What is it? If safe, I'll allow but need words of wisdom from those who know here.

    What browser (IE, Chrome, Firefox) are you using? I've not heard of that specific module and I we don't have anything on our site that would require an SVN plugin, so I suspect that it's malware or some other ad popper causing it to try and load. Let me know and I can investigate further.

    It seems that SVG stands for "Scalable Vector Graphics" which is an Adobe plugin, should be OK to allow, but I'll let Darren dig deeper.

    What browser and version are you using Frank? From what I can find it seems to be something associated with some version of Internet Exploder.

    yeah, don't click ok just yet, one should verify that it's signed by Adobe and not a virus/malware signed by "Unknown".

    Will have to get more info from Frank, but we don't have anything that requires a plugin like that, so not sure why he would be prompted when coming to FWW.

    I use Vista and just cleaned up the 'puter. Have several anti-virus programs installed. e.g. AVG, ASC, etc.

    With all the recent problems I've had with my computer, and from what I've been told by the Geek Squad, one should not have more than one anti-virus software on your computer at the same time as they will conflict with each other and cause some strange things to happen. Beware multiple virus programs!

    I had both Norton & McAfee on at the same time that caused crashes, freeze-ups, & a whole lot of stress!
