Hi all,

Just to let you know, I`ve spotted something weird when I log onto TM lately on my PC - It slows my PC down drastically, ie: mouse pointer sticking, typing not keeping up on screen etc...

What was more worrying was that my Virus-scanner, Bit-defender, keeps deleting a threat called "Bitcoin miner".

On doing some Internet digging, advice I have found is to check my PC`s CPU usage when on TM, and wow !......when I have TM loaded, it sends my CPU usage up to 99%, compared to under 10% whenever I close TM down.

Not sure if it`s my PC that has the problem, but it doesn`t happen with ANY other website up, ie Facebook, Pistonheads, and the F56 MINI forum - no others, JUST Total Mini.

I have done the usual scans for viruses, malware, ad-ware etc, and my PC is totally clean as far as they are all concerned.

Just thought you site-owners should know all of this - thanks.
