When I log on to PCA I get the home page with loads of news items. As of today if I click on any of those news items I get a dialogue box open up headed Authentication Required and containing the following:- Enter user name and password for click here is it all about? If I close the box I can still continue to read the item.

Which probably accounts for the fact that I no longer get email notifications when I subscribe to threads :-(

Sorry about this guys. No idea what is happening and I can't replicate it. Staging is a hidden version of the site we use to test things, hence the need for a password. We'll get it sorted.

This "Windows Security " pop up is still coming up on most pages, referring to pca.com at demo. Surely this can be sorted quickly. I enjoy the site, but for a magazine devoted to IT and PC matters it seems unbelievable how long these issues seem to go on for - long running scripts, this latest problem, difficulties signing in - never mind poor old Brumas having to prolong the Monday quiz past bedtime. We are, I am sure, very grateful for the "free" site, but it does seem to be taking a very long time to improve. It must be very frustrating for the staff, as well as the users.
