I just had spyware pop up on my screen. 11:51am on 10/8/08. It said "Download Anti-Virus program". It appeared on the main forum screen.

I also got an optimizer pop up while on the FSOT. It closed the IE I had open, so I wasn't able to screen shot the ads. I took a screen shot of the "warning" and emailed them to you, John. It was roughly 1057am CST. Running Webroot Spy Sweeper with AnitVirus. I closed out of the warning with the task manager to avoid clicking on it and had no other problems (well, so far!).

At 11:10 CST the virus software at my work (not sure what it is) blocked me from extra fluffy because of spyware. I'm using IE.

I have had this problem 3 times now. I'm not sure how much more I'll be coming around.

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

I know it's frustrating for everyone, but for those of you who are nervous and want to not come back for a while, try using firefox with the ad blocker. Someone posted it quite a few pages back. It's totally free, it's easy, and I haven't had a single problem while on it. I'm trying to help DS find the problem's cause, so I am also surfing some on IE with the ads. I am confident that my computer is blocking everything fine, so I don't mind. But seriously, I know how you feel...it's sad and frustrating to think you can't come back for a while. If you are to that point, seriously try the firefox. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Then when all of this is solved, it'll be business as usual back on IE! I hope this helps, mamas!

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

I just now got this pop-up trying to get me to install anti-virus software. At 12:20pm EST. I'm running Internet Explorer with Trend anti-virus software. The only ad I saw at the time was the giant Circuit City ad at the top.

ETA: If you are wondering, I use Firefox 3.03, and run AdBlock plus, NoScript and a few others and my antivirus programs are AVG, and Norton (obviously from the screen shot, as Norton flew up). And, for everyone stuck with this virus, download Ccleaner (Crap Cleaner) and it will clean your comp of this BS. And, if you ever get hacked, download Hack This.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO THIS! DH won't allow me back on until it's fixed. thanks!
