It will remove the majority of the ads. You can read more about becoming a Site Supporter by going into your User CP (link near top right of screen) and scrolling down to Paid Subscriptions (on the left).

Re: becoming a site supporter

according to this poll, even if you are a site supporter, there is a chance you will still get the virus pop up. I use Mozilla Firefox to browse, with adblock plus. it's a free download. I see no ads, and haven't had any virus issues. If I come here with another browser, it tells me to go back, this site will harm my computer.

Re: becoming a site supporter

I just became a site supporter for this reason. Got the message at least 6 times earlier today, but since I became a site supporter it hasn't happened. To tell you the truth...I am a little annoyed that this continues to happen even after things get sent to the tech people. I REALLY hope it doesn't happen to me again now that I am paying to be on the site.

The poll in OT had about half the supporters getting hit by the virus

Re: becoming a site supporter

I don't know what to do. I stayed away from DS for several months, got a new laptop that has good virus protection on it and the first time I come on to DS I get popups trying to download on my computer. It's frustrating. And it only happens when I am on this site.

I do not think we should have to pay so we do not get viruses browsing ds, that seems silly to me, it should be a safe site for everyone, even those who can not afford to be site supporters, right???

Being a Site Supporter will not necessarily stop them. I have been a SS for about a year and a DS virus wiped out my laptop last month.
