Viruses

Okay this is just getting annoying to the point that many people I see on other boards that also come here are starting to leave, yes leave because of all the virus and spyware crap. I am also starting to get bogged down with some of this and have been having issues and am starting to think this is not the place I want to be. I frequent boards, I love this one, but it is just not worth this crap if my computer is going to be messed up. Mods, I suggest you figure it out or you will wind up loosing more people than you gain. I have been here well over a year and this is my main board but I am tired of this. Maybe it is all the google ads, maybe it is not. I am not a tech, but saying there is no problem is also BS, so get it worked out or this board will loose out of many people who do want to participate.

Re: Viruses

I'm really new to DS (just joined last month), and I've picked up some viruses since I've started coming here. My husband is about to ban me from these boards because he's tired of cleaning off our computer!

Re: Viruses

I definitely got a virus. My computer was so screwed up. My mom's geek friend came and had to reset the entire system and I have been depressed this whole week. I had a butt load of family pics saved on our computer and they are all gone. Did I learn my lesson? No, I'm still here. But the geek-dude installed all sorts of spyware and virus scanner crap.

Re: Viruses

Go to kaspersky.com and download the free antivirus, it's good for a month, and it catches EVERYTHING!!! Also, get adaware and run a scan!

I've not had a problem since then, it's caught a couple, though...wish there were none to be caught, my month free is almost up!

Re: Viruses

Yup Kaspersky is the best and catches alot of Trojans that others dont. Adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy are both great programs.
