    For some reason every time I open any page on the beamng forums today it is downloading a new file called 227184794.
    They are all 511 bytes long and have no file extension. I reached 227184794(45) before I deleted them all, back upto (7) again now though. Happening in chrome and internet explorer.

    Its from the steam banner.

    Also pukes on it.

    Turns out adblock was causing it. Kinda noticed the steam banner was absent (which adblock didnt block at all yesterday). Adding beamng to the exclusion list bought the banner back and stopped the file downloads.
