Re: Anyone else getting viruses while on this site?

I've had it pop up twice, it looks like it is going to launch a virus software and it looks like it is scanning. But it isn't the program I have installed. I have closed out of it both times before it finished downloading, I have run full scans on my computer with the virus scanner software I do have and it doens't find any actual viruses. So hopefully it isn't too dangerous, just be sure to close it out before it loads.

Really?? Hmm that's not very reassuring at all. I actually could not post a message on here for over a week because of the last virus I got (I think here) my brother finally fixed that up and now things seem to be back to normal but if I pick it up again I think I'll have to avoid too....

Does anyone else have yahoo bad apple list. Diaperswappers is on there as a bad apple because of this. I was shocked to open my email to find that. What are the other diaper sites?

Re: Anyone else getting viruses while on this site?

I haven't had it happen to me yet at least not any trojan horses or anything. sometimes DS will just shut down and a window will pop up that says the internt needs to shut down. I know lots of mamas are having problems with this so that is why i frequent the other site more often now instead of DS. there have been many posts about this problem, but it seems like its only getting worse. don't be surprised if you see this thread moved or deleted.....thats whats happened to some of the other ones
