This is what happens to my computer. Instead of the DS site coming up a screen with a warning saying I have a virus and download this software to protect me. It reminds me of a pop up ad with the blinking lights saying download me now. My AVG warning also pops up. I click cancel on the ad but instead of closing it starts downloadning. I x out the download.
This exact thing has happened to me two days in a row and I have been on DS forever and it has never happened before. I hope it gets resolved soon.

I've had this pop up 3 times in the past two days. I'm not so desperate to look at diaper stuff that I'm willing to lose my computer. I hope this issue is resolved soon, and I hope an ADMIN checks into this thread soon. I think the lack of response is making users even more upset than they would be were it just the virus issue.

WE are and have been looking into this. IT is tough to hunt things down when we can't replicate it.
Also just because your software detects trojan horses it doesn't mean it came from DS.
We are working to try to replicate the issue and fix it.

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

When it comes up on my computer it asks me to run something to get protection. I knew it was malware because it was listing the viruses and the seriousness of them and one was spelled "avarage." May spelling be our guide! Ha!

Every time I see it, I run my Norton after I X out, and I've never had a problem...

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

DS, hotmail, and my bank's site are really the only places I visit. I turned on my computer the other day, opened my IE browser and as SOON as I clicked to go to DS.com, I was taken to this Malware thing. The bar was loading and it would not let me X out of it. Everytime I hit the "x" it came back. I had to Ctrl+ALT+del and manually close it. It is the only time in almost 2 yrs of coming to this site that I've EVER had any issues. Since then I have not seen it again. I've also NEVER EVER EVER had this happen on any of the other sites I've been to. I'm not the all-knowing computer guru, but I truly think it's coming from DS somehow. I hope it doesn't start happening to me often or I really won't be able to keep coming here.

I have been getting it about once a day for the past few days. Happens when I click my favorites link and only this site.
