Add me to the evergrowing list! I hadn't logged onto DS all day and as soon as I did, my antivirus went nuts and 6 worms, trojans, and spyware downloaded to my computer. All but two are in quarantine but I don't know how to fix the others. I am not happy at all right now!!!!!

If any of you ladies get the error, send me the screenshot.
I tried to get a screenshot of the virus information since my antivirus shut down the DS page as soon as the ads started popping up probably because of the viruses/spyware.

I hope this gets fixed soon because otherwise I can't afford to come back! DS would not be happy if we have to take our computer in to be fixed due to DS and the ads.

This exact same thing just happened to me too. It tried about 65times before I could even shut down the browser.

Me, too, for the first time today. I've been having trouble for a while on this site not being able to navigate as I choose, but this is the first time I've had pop=ups tryign to get me to download bogus "updates." This blows. I've got open transactions, but I'm not willing to wreck my computer just to come here.
