DS, what's the deal?

This only happens when I come to DS. The past 4 or 5 days I have pop-ups warning me of a problem of some sort and stating that internet explorer has to be closed. I've run a malware and virus scan, finding nothing. One of the warnings says there is a problem with an Adobe Flash Player add-on, so I went to the site and downloaded an updated version. Didn't help. I'm at a loss.

Re: DS, what's the deal?

It does this to me all the time lately too. I think it's a problem with one of the ads and not the DS site itself. Sometimes my IE can recover the page and sometimes it can't. It's very odd and annoying, but like you I don't think my computer is infected with anything, and there are no other sites that this happens with.

The popups themselves are actually malware. Download mozilla firefox and the addons AdBlock Plus and NoScripts. Seriously, you need to have that level of protection to come to diaperswappers now!
