Anyone know if this is a virus from here on CM or something?

Sometimes when I sign out of cafemom a new window opens up and I'll close it and another one will open (with CM as the page it's on) and then another, I close it, and another opens, close, and then another. After the 5th or 6th closing it finally stops? What the heck?

I have virus protection on here, and have run it recently with nothing found but I don't know... Any ideas or information about this one?

  • Not that I know of. I had a Malware virus and have no idea where I got it from. It took 2 weeks to get my computer back.

  • I just redid my whole computer in the last month because of some virus I got on here by going to someone's profile page........... I hope I don't have to redo it again!!

  • Like I said before, I've been on here for four years now and never have gotten any type of virus.

  • I've been with Cafemom since it first started and have NEVER gotten a virus from any of their stuff.

  • I have seen several complaints in the past couple of months about a virus from CM. CM always says it is not possible. I say it is or several would not complain.

  • It's possible to get a virus here without it coming directly from CM. If you use more layers of protection than a single anti-virus, there's far less chance you'll pick up one embedded in someone's pictures. Also, avoid the bad anti-virus programs like McAffee and Norton. There are far better (and cheaper) options out there that update more frequently and offer better additional protection.
