Re: Virus attack AGAIN - 5th time!!!

Got this same thing-- I think it is called virus doctor. Pops up and starts running without premission. It is a virus. I don't click on the ok, close or red x. I open task manager and close it by choosing end task. then I run my virus scan to be sure nothing downloaded. It is really annoying and I have only had it pop up while on diaperswappers.

I now try not to open many threads, just read the preview by hovering and only read ones I am really interested in to reduce chance of having the virus pop up.

Re: Virus attack AGAIN - 5th time!!!

I had this virus thing happen to me once here (awhile ago) and I no longer surf DS on Internet explorer. I cruise the boards ONLY on Firefox and I have flashblock and adblocker plus installed as add-ons. it's been working out for me so far . Just something to consider. It's either that or get a Mac

I got this too, just a few hours ago. I was suspicious of it popping up though, so I closed it out and ran my McAfee instead......

I also had it happen tonight. I wasn't able to close the program though, I had to turn off the computer and restart it.

Re: Virus attack AGAIN - 5th time!!!

Just got it today while browsing through the FSOT section. Didn't have anything else open. McAfee didn't seem to catch it at all either. Hopefully nothing downloaded -- and BTW I was using Firefox so the PP who said it only happens in IE is incorrect.

Please fix this! Last time I got a virus it was on DS too and we had to blow up the whole computer to fix it. DH is going to ban me!

Just to be clear: I did not say that it only happens in IE, I said that I have downloaded specific add-ons from FF that make my computer safer in addition to my virus software. I am sorry that this happened to you
