    I am there often. No virus issues in sight.

    What antivirus program are you running? Do you have a program to check for and remove malware, spyware, and adware (different from viruses). What other websites did you visit that day? Did you click on any advertisements or popups? Who else used the computer?

    I go on there a bit. There are LOTS of members from here that are over there. It's very helpful, especially if you have goats or rabbits. [​IMG] I've never had problems with it. I don't think your computer got a virus from BYH. Something else most likely. [​IMG]

    I go on there daily. I haven't recieved any viruses. Most likely you got a virus from another website.

    I also go on there frequently and never get a virus. It's very helpful and I've learned a lot from it.
