    You might want to take a close look at your site code and that of some of your advertisers - one of them seems to be infected with a malware application that tries to trick you into installing a bogus anti-virus program, and won't let you navigate away from their ad. The only way out of it is to close your browser using Windows Task Manager.

    We do not have any third party advertisements on the site and have never had a similar complaint.

    Could possibly be a problem on your end, In any case I will notify the administrator of this error.

    Thanks for looking. To see some more info on the sort of thing I am referring to see:

    Evil Inc. by Brad Guigar - Daily Super-Villain Webcomic and Comics Blog

    scroll down to the site owner's post for October 3.

    Edit: I just looked at your site and it looks very different from the one I looked at the first time. I may be referring to the wrong Tool Bloke as you seem to have only posted about Veto ProPack bags - I bought one a year ago & still haven't filled it up - and the site I saw a link for on the Forums had a couple of pages of info about power tools & spot ads down the sides, something fishy anyway. Time to set loose the malware killers on my machine again.

    bsrlee is correct - you have a serious problem with your website.

    Clicking anywhere on the top banner product image gives this response from IE9:

    Found the issue thanks for heads up. The error was only apparent with certain IE versions..

    Look good, I'd like a mini closed top bag that only held 12 items & a multimeter.

    I'd also like a micro bag that held 5 items & a multimeter for when I have to go through security check points that make you unpack everything & itemize it on a checklist on the way in & then again on the way out.

    90% of my work only needs 2 or 3 items.
