    I'd like to notify whoever is in charge that the "Troika Games" link doesn't work as intended.

    If logged in, the link leads to the archived Troika site at http://www.terra-arcanum.com/troikagames just as it's supposed to.
    But if you're not logged in, it leads to the original URL (which of course doesn't exist anymore) and redirects you to what, according to avast!, is a virus infested hell hole.

    Sounds to me like it's working EXACTLY as intended.

    I have not been able to replicate this at all it works for whether logged in or not.

    Go and get real anti virus software with some actual money.

    My choice of antivirus is not the issue, I just wanted to notify you of a faulty link. The virus infested part was simply a warning for anyone investigating the matter.

    According to the page source, these are the different links:

    When logged off
    [<a href="http://www.troikagames.com" class="mainmenu">Troika Games</a>]

    When logged on
    [<a href="http://www.terra-arcanum.com/troikagames/" class="mainmenu">Troika Games</a>]


    The former link is still faulty, even if I'm the only one experiencing virus alerts.
    I didn't ask for software advice, I just wanted to help out.
    Thanks, though.

    See, that wasn't so hard, was it?
