Me too! I downloaded some new spyware with antivirus and it recognizes the bug, but it is not eradicating it. Frustrating! I am on my laptop right now and if my husband knew about it, he would not be impressed.

I don't know if there is anything that the techs can do. The "hackers" will just reinfect ds. I think the best thing we can do is not click on questionable links and get some good spyware/adware with antivirus.

My husband read that the hackers make money from advertising companies when they are able to get our computers to "click" on advertisements. That is exactly what my virus is doing. It hijacked my internet browser and opens up 10 advertisements as soon as I log onto the internet. It will just keep going unless I shut it down. It really sucks!

I hope my tech guy can get my cpu figured out and make it bulletproof bc I can't imagine life without ds at this point.
