Re: Got The virus:3-22-10 info in later posts on how to fight and remove

I don't see how it can't be coming from DS. Why do we all get the virus while browsing DS? It's not like I"m getting the virus on another site and just blaiming it on DS. I've gotten it twice on my home computer and twice at work.

Well, the results are in the screen shots and in the fact that our techies are keeping a close eye on all things security for DS. Just because you get a notification while browsing a certain website doesn't at all mean that the malware came from the page you are browsing. Many malware programs lay dormant for some time and go unnoticed, many come to your PC separate from your browsing experience.

But why always when I'm browsing DS? And on 4 different occasions? That just seems like a lot for it not to be coming from one place. This is the only forum I'm on where I know multiple people that have gotten viruses.

Well, in the past we have had issues. In this case it isn't us.

I never had a problem with the virus on DS when it was causing problems a few months ago, however yesterday was the first time I had a threat pop up as soon as logged onto DS. Luckily it was caught by my anti-virus.....It was a new browser window and it happened as soon as DS popped up, so unlikely it came from anywhere else....

my virus also popped up in a new window and I was only on DS at time time. I was able to fix and though, regardless the links I provided can help you fix the mystery virus.

Re: Got The virus:3-22-10 info in later posts on how to fight and remove

I've been browsing DS for quite a while now (well over a year) and never had an issue with any viruses or warnings. I get on several times a day and have used many different computers. I was always nervous because of how many people were saying they were getting viruses from here, but thankfully I've had no issues at all. Maybe it has to do with what browser??

i fixed my issue with malware bytes and AVG anti virus by downloading the file into my second comp and using a usb stick to load the programs renamed into my infected comp.
