Re: Site painfully slow? And multiple virus popups?

DS is still loading fast for me (actually faster than normal), but I have no infections. If you already have a virus, your computer is going to be slow regardless. You have to get rid of it. I never get viruses or spyware infections due to a good firewall. I use Zone Alarm but I'm sure there are other options out there as well.

I haven't gotten any security warnings when on DS and I'm on here multiple times a day. There was a pop up a few weeks ago that was questionable. I closed it out from the task manager (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) and it never tried installing anything on my computer. I also saw it on mothering last week. Firefox caught it that time, but when I tested IE it didn't even give a warning. Mothering identified where it was coming from and got rid of it within a few hours. There is a huge security hole in IE right now if you do a news search you can read more about it. That could be part of the problem.

Re: Site painfully slow? And multiple virus popups?

DH is a system admin. We have a good firewall and I know what to click on, and what not.

I did nothing. I clicked on my PM box, and bam! I have scanned my entire system and removed whatever it was, but this site is still slow. And only this site.

The site software has been checked as has the forum code and both are clear.
