This is not the first, second, or third time this has happened to me..

And it's happened TWICE in the past 10 minutes!

Thankfully, I have antivirus and it caught it right away.. but still.. geez...

It wasn't just a virus! It was a trojan, with most likely a back door to my computer!!

I URGE EVERYONE to go to avast.com and download their antivirus!! It is te best free one I've found!

I too am getting this. I was just coming to ask about it. I just started coming back to DS because the same thing happened last year and it got to the point it would crash my computer everytime I came to the site. I hope they can get it fixed soon!

Both of my computers were destroyed by DS earlier in 2009. I had to have them both fixed, new hard drives, thankfully they were able to recover the data from my laptop, but it cost a pretty penny.

I now run Firefox with Adblock plus and have not had one single pop up in almost a year now. HIGHLY recommend browsing DS using Firefox with Adblock. Make sure your antivirus is on and working and your Firewalls are up.

The bonus of adblock is that you don't see pesky ads on ANY site, including Facebook. The viruses are coming from the advertisements.

I had some issues (even using Firefox) but once I added AdBlock Plus I have had no problems You do have to update the ABP every so often to ensure that all of the ads are filtered....Oh, I also have McAfee & Spybot S&D
