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

I just got my computer back.They had to wipe my comp clean.Norton does not help at all.I have now switched to mcafee and spybot.Every time I am on ds I have to quarenten(sp) virsus and trojens.My husband is about to ban me from ds. I really do hope the situation is resolved because not everyone has $100 to get there computer fixed if they dont have good enough protection.

This happened to me today too at approx 4:30 - 4:45 p.m. E.S.T. I had a trojan blocked by McAffee while on DS.

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

I think this almost happened to me today when I loaded the site; a screen came up telling me that my computer's performance and safety level is low and I should install something. Luckily I didn't. I hope it still wasn't able to get the trojan thingy onto my computer...
