Re: Virus Again...

I just got one as well. Something about Virus Doctor. If it pops up again I'll get a screenshot, but I was using Firefox, and when it popped up I freaked and Cntl Alt Deleted the whole thing.

this has popped up TWICE in one hour for me already this morning, then it tries to download something and you have to click out of it quickly before it downloads. I use IE

Re: Virus Again...

All day yesterday I was getting notices from Avira while on DS. I kept getting the pop ups and hubby told me to put them into quarantine. I haven't had this issue in a LONG time so something is up!

Re: Virus Again...

I just got it again a minute ago. I'm on a different computer. I was clicking on a FSOT post. The first time I saw this last night I was on the forum index.

Crap, I just got this, too! I'm on Firefox and just closed the tab. I haven't gotten that in a few months.

I just got that exact same thing, where it minimized DS and put the window behind the warning. I Cntl Alt Deleted it, and was able to get out before anything happened (I hope) I have virus scanner running now.
