1. I am sorry. I know this affects users, it is frustrating, and it makes DS looks bad. We are in talks now about how to handle certain ad networks going forward. We know we need to find a "once and for all solution" and it is something we had thought we found a few times but apparently not.

2. The comment I made in the prior flare up of complaints was never meant to demean any mama / member of DS. It is a shame that to some it came off that way. I was simply relating to many of the mamas that I communicate with when they have questions / issues as I know their frustration with PC's at times. Even the best PC user has periods of frustration with the lovely technology.

3. I am 100% committed to fix this issue once and for all.

Thanks for reading and please continue posting up screenshots of anything related to virus / malware issues that will help us in this endeavor.
Thank you for admitting there is a problem and that it is coming from here. That alone could have saved many, many members from leaving.

Are you up to date with your paid McAfee subscription? Otherwise, I am not sure what you are asking exactly. Can you elaborate?

Yes, its up to date. Just recently bought and downloaded the most recent version.
When on DS McAfee pops up and says I am not protected and I have to verify my subscription ect...

Then the same thing happened on someone elses computer when I was there surfing DS.

Are you sure it is McAfee. Be careful that it isn't some malware program playing games with you. I recommend 100% that you go ahead and download the FREE trial version of Malware Bytes. Run the QUICK SCAN (for starters) and clean off (remove) any infected files. This works SO WELL!

Re: Anyone else getting viruses while on this site?

I am currently taking a break from DS, as of right now.
My laptop is fried because of all the viruses on this site. I know it was from here too because DS is the only site I was on on that particular computer for a couple days.
My DH has been trying to fix my computer for 2 days straight
He is a big computer geek and told me not to visit DS until it was all worked out
Such a bummer

Re: Anyone else getting viruses while on this site?

I just cleaned my computer!!!! 42 things found!! I've never had so many. Not to long ago I had to dump EVERYTHING on my laptop... I think it was from all of the crap I got from here. I'm sorry but I really hope this works out soon or I'm gone!
