I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!


I had never heard of either of those add ons before and omg you saved my eyes thank you so much. I really hope this prevents me from getting the virus and saves my comp too. I dont want to leave DS but I was fearing I would have to with all this cray virus junk going on.

Re: I'm STILL getting VIRUSES from DS????

I get viruses on here on a weekly basis. This is the only website I get them from and they are mostly trojans. Why can't there be anything done about it?

eta: I have firefox with ABP and I still get viruses.

DH has banned me from DS but he's asleep right now! I've had BOTH of our computers in the shop twice in the last 6mo or so. I use Firefox and have virus software and still get them.

Firefox with ad block plus and no script

Really, if its this big of a problem, you'd think a MOD would make it a sticky. Seriously. The site is losing members, and members are losing money with computers in repair shops.

There should be some sort of law that protects people from this. When someone is knowingly putting viruses out and chooses to ignore the situation.

yeah, I did too

but most of the time, firefox locks my computer up totally when i come to this site and ends up shutting everything down. I went through about a week of this mess!

most of the time i access this site from home using my work computer and if the problems keep up, i am going to have to stop coming here altogether. it's very frustrating and nerve wracking, not to mention a huge PITB!
