    I've actually heard that Norton increases your chance of getting a virus.

    OK, new post - get this...
    My work computer just got infected by a virus on Tuesday. What a brutal pain.
    Boot w/F8 in safe mode still brought up blue screen.
    I got back in by booting w/F12 & original windows disk.
    Today (Thursday) at a random time (2:20pm), a new anti-virus software on my computer alerted me to some "new viruses" and said "click here to fix". I'm not computer savvy, but I know when to not click. So I got the IT guy.

    Our IT guy said that one of the new ways of getting these "fake anti-virus" softwares (that's what I have, it shows up as two new "shield icons" in my lower right screen tray) is through banner ads. He said that hackers are paying for banner advertising and pretending to be a major company. He said that "mom and pop" websites are often the biggest victims. They accept the banner ad - and then the ad reroutes the web surfer to a website where the software is downloaded to their computer. Once loaded, it waits for a certain time and then shows up as "virus detected".

    I work for a very small company myself (10 people) & our anti-virus software is probably pretty poor. Any chance that any of the Dobber banners are "fakes"? I only visit about 4 or 5 websites at work: Dobber, ESPN, USA Today Fantasy Hockey, Hotmail, and my bank & personal sites.

    Thoughts?

    I'm having issues on my home computer, as well. My office has too many firewalls etc...

    Everytime I log onto Dobber or NHL.com I get this virus auto-scan pop up or I'm automatically re-routed to a different site.

    My initial scans detected 4 trojans (using superantispyware) and one other malware (using spybot).

    All was quarantined, but I'm still having the same issue and subsequent scans have detected nothing.

    I'm at a loss....

    No, absolutely; I did not intend to implicate Dobber. Sorry if it came out that way....

    I'm just not sure what's going on is all.
