It pops up regularly when on the site on my mobile, open or save this file? I am worried its a virus

Yep me too. When using a windows phone.

Same here!

Windows phone too.

Me too. Also Windows Phone. I've been googling for ages to try and find out why. Thought it was just me, but is obviously site related... Any answers Mumsnet?

I've just reported my own post to MNHQ, so hopefully the answer/solution may be forthcoming?! It's darned annoying as I can't access the site on my phone now.

Hi there,
Thanks for flagging this. Sorry about that, we'll make sure the tech-heads are on the case and get back to you.

Hi same issue on a windows phone here.

Same here . I'd put it down to too much bank holiday cider grin

Same here. It's definitely not my phone as it's only happening on this site.

The message I'm getting on my Lumia asks if I want to open or save the file but when I tap either it says unable to save/open as my phone does not support the document format.

Hi all - it sounds like this is a dodgy ad. Which ads are people seeing on the page? Once we know this, we can block asap. Thanks for flagging.
