some AV software will label any cookie as such..... everytime my laptop does a malware scan and fix, I have to re-enter my log in for this and other sites....

Not saying that is your problem, but there is malware and then there is MAL ware, if you get my drift...

Probably overly sensitive but we'll see if anybody else is getting reports. I'm not. Can you be more specific?

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at https://www.stromtrooper.com/informat...-you-have.html

I've been back a half-dozen times since I posted, and haven't gotten the warning since?

All good here, but I usually am, with Linux...

1980's-XL80s
1983 Nighthawk 550
1990's Vulcan 750
1983 GS450L
2004 DL650

There are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity... Most of them ride V-Stroms.
