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

I just logged onto Ds (4:57pm) and got an AVG virus warning. I tried to take a snapshot of the page, but I did not do it correctly. Sorry I'll try again if I get it again. I had to log off internet to get the warning to go away. Virus scan of my computer showed nothing.

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

This is what I got (it was a popup window) at approximately 4:35 pm MST when I tried to change from one page to another here on DS. I use IE and have Windows XP on my pc...

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

I've had it happen several times...randomly. In fact, I pulled up diaperswappers around 5:00 and didn't even have a chance to login before the ad/spyware thing came up and shut the whole IE window down (not the computer, just the IE window) and it popped up 2 or 3 things with/about it. It took a little while to get it all cleaned up. Needless to say it was very irritating.

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

I haven't been on DS for a while, but when I tried to visit, (today at 7:15pm) a message came up saying "if your computer is infected ...." blah blah and said something about click here to download antivirus stuff from antispyware master. I have a webroot virus/spyware scanner that runs everyday and this wasn't part of it. Now I see that it's not just me. Don't know if that's good or bad.

My case exactly. I am lucky that SO rocks when it comes to computers, otherwise I would have been out of commission awhile ago. My laptop is getting it repeatedly, so I switched to SO's laptop and I get this: (@9:18)

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

I am wondering why some with Firefox and adblock plus are fine while others running the same setup are affected. It seems like if you aren't seeing the ads then you wouldn't be affected. Hmm... Good luck everyone!!

Circuit City Ads seem to be causing a lot of issues..I just went to update my listing and ended up with I don't know what popping all over my screen along with being sent to Circuit City when I didn't click on anything. I had to shut that tab down and start over..
