Re: Anyone else getting viruses while on this site?

It happened to me the other day, thankfully I got the warning and blocked it from coming in! This is not very reassuring, as I do not need a virus as I have to be on the computer a lot during the day setting up events and stuff!

Yes it happened a while back, stopped, and now is happening again and lately my computer is running very slowly and windows shutting down for no reason at all. I'm not sure if they are related but I've avoided DS for the past few days because of the virus "software" popping up.

If you are still having this, please see the "ask the Pros" section and post there. They initially denied there is a problem, and now they are saying they fixed it, so if you ar still getting this, please please please report it.

Re: Anyone else getting viruses while on this site?

I got it on my computer and it cost me $300 - the tech guy told me to run Malwarebytes as well. He confirmed it came from DS. I am not insane. I actually thought it came in an email I opened.

Here is Malwarebytes site: http://malwarebytes.org/

https://www.cleverbridge.com/342/?sc...out&cart=29945

It is total crap when anyone says DS isn't the problem. I got the same thing on DH's laptop when mine was in the shop and it was the only site I went to.

One more time and I'm done with DS. I think I'm good with what the tech set me up with but still, I worry. I had Trend Micro security and it knew the virus was there but couldn't get it off. The virus counted key strokes and took screen shots so vital info was in danger. I had to change all my banking info.

Re: Anyone else getting viruses while on this site?

My computer downloaded a trojan in the short time of trying to close IE. I ran Kaspersky and it immediately quarentined it, I think it's ok. Now I've got Kaspersky running just to try and keep it from happening again. I thought maybe the virus was still loose because my computer was so slow, but then I closed Kaspersky and it acted just fine so I think just having Kaspersky running in the background is what slowed it down so much...I'm still going to back up all of my pictures and my quicken right quick just in case--they are the most important things on here. Last August I had 7 trojans from a extreme malware download and I totally lost every picture I had ever taken of my twins. So I'm def more diligent about backing up now.

Re: Anyone else getting viruses while on this site?

So the problem continues. Well file a complaint. What bothers me most about this whole thing, is the way we have been treated. What would have been the right thing to do in this whole situation, is to admit that yes maybe the problem is coming from DS. Instead, we were told we were idiot mamas who dont know much about computers, and that we are all wrong. Hmmmm??? Well it does not seem like we were wrong after all. An apology is warrented here, and it should be done quickly. This is just so upsetting.
