I got another virus off of here

The first time it completely killed my computer so I had to go and buy a new computer for 500.00 now tonight this one has one. A trojan of some horrible kind. I have been working on this for 2 hours and I finally found out where it is on my computer. It has a keylogger on it and some other stuff. I found it and have had it shut down now for the last 5 minutes. I know though that as soon as I hit enter it will be back. I am at my wits end. My computer is froze up and there is a white box in the middle of the screen , i do not know what it is but i know that I can only see the sides and the top and bottom of my screen. It also has highjacked all of my virus protection , adaware, and trojan remover.

Re: I got another virus off of here

I just had my screen go to a new website as well. I closed it down before the site actually opened but it was something about "jump"

It was some sort of sex website too.

Re: I got another virus off of here

Twice yesterday I got a trojan alert from my antivirus software right as the page on DS I was reading tried to redirect elsewhere. I had issues the previous time there was a virus where I would get 2-3 virus alerts on each page of DS I would click and had to take a DS break until it was gone.

I hope this is fixed promptly! If it happens to me again today, I'm not coming back until it is fixed as I can't jeopardize my computer actually getting the virus.

Mine went to a virus scan website and said that I did not have any on my computer so it froze me up. I tried to open my real virus scanner and it wont open at all.

Re: I got another virus off of here

My Mcafee caught it. I wonder why your virus protection didn't catch it. Maybe you should run an update for whatever virus protection you have.
SS mamas that it got your computers.

Re: I got another virus off of here

Wow I thought it was some weird thing with me - I'm on an iMac so I have no fear of viruses, but yesterday a screen popped up while I was on this forum telling me I had a Trojan and wanting me to scan things - I couldn't get it to close so I had to force quit firefox. Bad thing is it looks like a warning from your own computer so some people may click on it - DH always warns me never to click anything of that nature so I got out of it quickly.

That is really bad it's infecting computers THROUGH this site - scary!
