Problem downloading images

  magnus35 20:00 13 Oct 2007

A site I have used successfully for some time seems to have gone wrong .
Previously , left clicking would open an image , a short graphic would say ' loading ' then right clicking brought up the option to save the image to wherever desired .
Now , clicking on any image opens it in a window without any preamble but it is not possible to save the picture - left or right clicking just causes the window to close . At the top of the blue bar of the window it gives 'name of image - windows internet explorer'and the bar underneath this shows the IE icon then says 'about:blank' .
Is this a problem at the site or can I do anything . It has been like this for several days now .

Thanks for the interesting links woodchip .
I can't say that I fully understand what is going on though as the problem only exists on that one site and image downloading works as normal elsewhere .
Scans showed nothing , as indicated by your links .
Is it possible that that site is infected , rather than my PC ?
