 I got a virus today on CM . I went to send a PM to someone and the screen went crazy and my virus protection went on.  This was posted in another group.  Just wanted to give you a heads up on this:

There has been some kind of virus spreading through Cafemom. A couple of members lost everything. a friend got one on her profile page by adding a graphic from a group.Someone else said it was a cookie tracker.Whatever it is be very careful.Run scans often and if you do go to a page and a warning box pops up and says you are infected,to remove click here,DO NOT CLICK. Thats how it gets you. Just go to your own virus protection and let it run a scan.Thanks

I have had that happen to me on my old computer.  Once you get it its a pain to get rid of.  It took me two months to finnally get rid of it.

Oooh yah I've had that pop up before, luckily I have antivirus and spyware and I had been warned not to click!  Great post though, hope no one else gets this thing!
