Re: malicious software trying to install on my computer while surfing on DS 2x today.

I have more screen shots to upload, but I'm going to have to ask the talented mama who helped me out if she will do it again! I have a b-day party and church in a few, so I'll have to get back on tonight.

I'm sick of this! DS needs to do something about it. Several mama's along w/ myself won't be coming back here if it's not fixed.

DH who is a computer geek says do not click on ok or cancel but close the window you were trying to open and start over because you can still infect yourself if you click ok or cancel.

I do run Linux on my laptop, but I also have Windows and it works the same

eta--Another thing to do is to not allow scripts to run (which will break some sites, but you will be totally safe). On Firefox, you download a no scripts ad on, but not sure how you do that on IE

I'm on a MacBook and run this on it.
Don't have any ads, and haven't had any problems

This happened to me this morning. It only showed the background and DS across the top and then went to multiple pop ups wanting to install and anti spyware anti phishing device. I ended up having to shut down the internet to get it gone.

If your anti virus / spyware programs have give you the OK that should be fine.
