Re: Virus Twice!

So.... I had my ad blocker off and guess what? "47 trojans", "your computer is under attack".

Thanks, DS!

Seriously, when I visited with no ad blocker, the site was terribly slow, blinking things in my face everywhere, distractingly huge ads. Not cool.

Re: Virus Twice!

They make money from the adds, so until the ads they go with are no longer infected, we will still have this issue.

Re: Virus Twice!

I had this, had to have my computer reformatted and pay some idiot to do it. He said he put something on my computer to prevent it from happening, but I have it again. How do I fix this?

My Norton Internet Security took care of it. I would start in safe mode and run your antivirus software.

Re: Virus Twice!

DS isn't going to have a reason to have these ads paying them if they don't do something. This is ridiculous. A lot of people are leaving because of this and I don't blame them. The first time I have to reformat my computer, I'm gone too. It's too much of a PITA and it makes me sad because I love this site.

Re: Virus Twice!

I'm glad I'm not the only one! This has happened on my computer 4 times in the last 2 days. At least now it doesn't freak me out like it did the first time!

Just don't click OK, but close all the windows, and cross your fingers the next time you're on DS
