Thanks for the update. We are still working on the issue and will keep everyone updated.

If you are posting problem reports in this thread can you please specify what browser you have and your anti-virus/spyware if you have it installed. Also, if you happen to be affected, please take a screen shot! This is the most effective way for us to track down the offending ad!

You can take a screen shot by pressing 'PrintScreen' or 'PrtScrn' on your keyboard. Then, open MS Word and press 'CTRL-C' to copy the image into a Word document. If you have screen shots, please PM me!

Thanks!

I have Firefox version 3.0.3 with AdBlock Plus installed, and we have McAfee.

This has happened to me a couple of times too. My screen turns red and there is a warning message that looks like it's coming from Windows. It is trying to get me to install an anti-spyware program. I am using the newest Mozilla and I have the free AVG antivirus. Thanks for working on this!

We have disabled all the ads except Google and DS site sponsors.

We are going to monitor the feedback with the ads off and then one by one we will turn each ad network back on, to see if we can get the culprit.

Hi,

We just made some changes to help track down the problem, in a nutshell we have disabled almost all the ads on the site to help track down the problem. The ads were turned off around 11AM, so if we are seeing issues after that period it would be good to confirm it.

Did your issue just occur or was this something that happened in the last couple days?

Thanks.

So glad that this is being looked into. Firefox and Chrome have both caught the problem several times and blocked me from entering DS due to "antispyware.com".

Haven't seen it since 11 am though.
