Re: MALWARE is back! virus just tried to download on my computer!!

Just happened to me too.The ds page began loading and then suddenly this box pops up about virus and not being safe.Then this page tried to download something.Luckily I got off before anything actually downloaded.First time this has happened to me from this site but I have heard of it happening for awhile now.

Re: MALWARE is back! virus just tried to download on my computer!!

I have been having many computer problems in recent months. I just had to redo my computer b/c a really bad worm was on it. I had FireFox. I've been battling worms and viruses a lot. I am not sure what kind of proof I need to provide, but the DS website is the only one that I ever have had any problems with.



I can't figure out how to make my screenshots bigger. Sorry.

Anyway, DH just redid my computer yesterday. The DS website stalls out for me-yesterday about a dozen times. Oh, DS also freezes a lot on me. I can even open up other websites and use them while DS is locked up. I end up haveing to shut down my computer.
My keyboard is no longer working properly either-for about 4 days now. When I hit certain keys the curser moves. I wonder if anyone else has experienced this problem.

I love DS and really enjoy being here. Please help us figure out these problems so we can continue to be here.

Ok is this virus sending you to a screen that says you are at a site with a virus? Then it asks to do stuff and is hard to get away from? Or is that my spyware? I can't figure it out. It only happens here.

Re: MALWARE is back! virus just tried to download on my computer!!

This happened to me again yesterday, and today I was chatting with some mamas on another site and someone posted a link to something on fsot, and when another mama I was chatting with clicked on the link, it happened to her.

I go to DS. DS partially loads, displaying the template only. When I say "template" I mean: the background and header up to the point just above where the ad displays. The page lags as if it is having trouble loading the ad. (This is what I meant by "stallouts" when I posted before.)

On the prior occasions I have had this occur, this is as far as it went (as in, the page stopped loading at this point). Today, however, DS acted as if I had clicked the ad that wasn't loading (does that make sense?) and brought me to the page I mentioned before, of which there are a few screen shots on this thread already.

I hope that helps flesh out the issue.
Thank you for describing it so well!
This is exactly what is happening to me.
Along with the freezing and ey



ETA: Sorry my keyboard went funky and suddenly it sounded like my post posted and then I was kicked back to the thread, but my post wasn't there. Now it is. So, obviously I'm still having keyboard function problems.

Re: MALWARE is back! virus just tried to download on my computer!!

Add me to the list.

When I logged in to DS today my antivirus software (AVG) stopped the page from loading and warned me that there was a problem. I didn't see the screen that others are referring to because AVG stopped it from loading in the first place, but it was trying to go to a URL outside of DS. I then scanned my whole computer with AVG and it appears to be clean. It looks like this is something that AVG can catch, so maybe that might help some people. I have the free version. For the record, I also use Firefox.

Re: MALWARE is back! virus just tried to download on my computer!!

Happened to me a bunch yesterday and then twice today.

I just started coming back here bc dd needs to size up in a few things...the last time it destroyed our home PC......I wasn't really paying attention to the "ads" last time and just kept clicking them closed...once I realized what was going on, it was too late.

We still need to put Firefox on this laptop. I'll have Dh do it tonight before he defrags the computer....
