Virus attack AGAIN - 5th time!!!

This is the 5th time I've been attacked while on Thankfully my virus software caught it this time. I've had to wipe my hard drive twice already = lost everything!! Why does this keep happening?!?! Is anyone working on this??

My computer popped up with a message stating my computer had been attacked by a virus - then the diaperswapper website went to this odd website and it kept telling me to download this file to prevent all data from being lost - when I clicked OK my McAfee said if I clicked ok my computer could be infected.... So I didn't click it...... I was on my email and the family roots site - the same thing happened the other day and I just had DS open.....

I am not sure, I have had no issues, but I will send this to the techs to look into.

Don't click it! The GreenAV is a virus itself. Your McAffee should get rid of it. It's not from ds though, I wasn't on ds when I got mine. Google it, I can't remember everything but thats what I did and then I got Stopzilla and it seems to work better then my McAffee.

Re: Virus attack AGAIN - 5th time!!!

just got this - I was redirected from DS to http:// 24-051wL0IzLGBzL== (without the spaces) and my screen looked like the screenshot above. It is the same deal as the last time this was happening.

If anyone else gets this, you need to close out, don't click on anything.

Re: Virus attack AGAIN - 5th time!!!

Again? I thought they'd finally resolved this. It roasted my laptop earlier this year. Why is it apparently so hard to fix? I guess I'll go back to just checking in rarely rather than browsing the boards. Very disappointing.

Re: Virus attack AGAIN - 5th time!!!

I had the same thing pop up, amongst other things early yesterday morning.

I have a firewall, mcafee virus protection and a spyware program and I didn't click on ANYTHING and still got it. Oh, and I have a pop-up blocker, too.

My partner (she is an IT geek ) ended up working on it for more than 6 hours last night.

I had 6 viruses and 2 trojans (originating from here, according to the source code).

I am getting rid of McAfee, b/c obviously it didn't do it's job (switching to AVG).
