seriously, just do it. I've seen this posted and have posted it so many times myself, I almost DONT feel sorry for those getting virus via the ads! I know its annoying, I know they shouldn't be there, but how many threads does it take?

No Script is another Ad-on from Firefox. It disables a lot of things, but doesn't allow ANY scripts to load on the computer, which includes things that you want. You just have to learn what to allow when

I just don't understand why it only happens with this site. I go to so many other forums with ads, and never get a virus? I guess I will try firefox with Ad block......

I guess its cheaper/more money for DS to run the ads that contain viruses? Either way, its a free site that I choose to browse. I'll protect myself with what I can or stop visiting. Seems they aren't bothered by it much or don't know how to solve it. Its been what, over a year now almost? (at least from when I joined?)

yep, a couple weeks ago i was hit too , even with all of this and mcaffee... on a laptop that was less than 6 weeks old.. needless to say , i was less than thrilled.. I wont be paying for a site supporter anymore ( i'd like to think that being an active , upstanding member of the site for over 3 years would be proof enough that i support DS , ) I saw a site online that said how much DS is "worth" what it generates daily in ad revenue.. that plus how ever many site supporters there are seems like it should/could/would be enough to keep it clean... oh and it was before cotton babies started sponsoring the site

Re: I'm STILL getting VIRUSES from DS????

so just having the adds appear on the page (not clicking on them) can get you a virus?

We use AVG anti-virus and firefox...not sure about the add-ons, as that's DH's area of expertise and he's sleeping (where I should be)
