Is this true irrespective of the previous claim of the <script> beign
(Does it need to contain a <script> and be in a 'bad' directory? Or

I don't suppose you could list several examples of both cases?
Have you tried multiple browsers on the work machine? Which browsers

I don't suppose you could try taking the work machine home to try it
from there (so as to see if it is a network issue or machine issue.)
