I keep getting viruses from DS.
 
I know because it's the only site I have open when it happens. It never happens anywhere else. A scammer program called Antivirus Live installed without my permission last night (google it) and I know it came from here! Also I've been having problems with scanners that I don't have installed on my computer showing up when I click a link on this site and they start scanning without my permission! Now, since last night, often (once again, only on this site), I get a pop-up saying 'are you sure you want to navigate away from this page?' whenever I click on a link. It's driving me crazy and I may stop coming here if it continues. It has to be coming from the ads on this site. SO and I went through a lot trying to save my computer last night. The fake spyware scanner that installed from here last night made it so I could not open ANYTHING on my computer. We had to restart the computer in safe mode and had a hell of a time getting malware bytes to scan because of the trojan. Now it's gone and my computer's running fine, but I am still getting the 'are you sure you want to navigate away from this page?' while on DS.

Thought I'd let you know.

I have been getting the same "Do you want to navigate away from this page" message today. To top it off, a program claiming to offer virus clean up has dumped some type of spyware on my computer causing it to shut down. I have disabled all of my start up programs and I am now in the process of running Microsoft Security Essentials to clean up my computer. It has already removed 3 threats.

What fun:rolleyesout:

I had two try to get me last night, I won't even click on the box if it pops up, I will immediately reboot my computer. But I still think something's snuck through. It has to come from here because the only other place I go is my email account on gmail.

I did not click to close, I used Task Manager to shut it down, and it still embedded itself.

I am removing a Trojan right now. I am 100% sure it came from here. :thumbsup:
