Re: Screen Shot of Virus?

I got this coming up today, too. Is this a virus?

Re: Screen Shot of Virus?

Add me to the list. I'm not happy right now, as I just bought a new hard drive on Friday after my last one died completely and I lost everything. At least now I'll know exactly what caused the problem.

It happened in my message inbox -right after I sent a message. Please let us know when this will be fixed. Since it's happened once already, I assume it should be fairly easy to track down?

This seems to be a recurrent problem on this site. Hopefully they can fix it soon. Do not click anywhere on the pop up, even to close the box (that's how the virus infects), I always just immediately shut down my computer and reboot. Unfortunately I've gotten the pop-up several times since Friday so I'm really limiting my time here on DS.

I got this today as well, and I'm beyond annoyed! Why doesn't diaperswappers every DO anything about it? This has been happening every few weeks since I started on diaperswappers!

The worst part is that even if you pay the $30/year to be a site supporter, they still require you to view one ad per page, so there's no guarantee that you still won't be getting these viruses. Unbelievable!

Re: Screen Shot of Virus?

Same thing for me this morning. I hit CTRL+ALT+DLT and ended the browser task.

I really like DS, but I find the number of reports of viruses and spyware/malware disturbing.

Re: Screen Shot of Virus?

I have gotten this twice just this morning -- both times while viewing threads in the Q & A forum.

Ugh, and it's my WORK computer....yeah, I know I shouldn't be on DS while at work....
