Are there some dodgy people on here?

I just clicked on a recent post on here saying stuff for sale.  As soon as I clicked the link my computer froze and up popped a red box saying the file was infected and now had a virus???  I'll be pretty peeved off with this person if its true.  Has this happened to anyone else?

Microsoft Security Essentials picks up problems immediately and its free, as sometimes get a warning and it looks genuine and then asked £70 to clear it naughty its ashame these people could not use their skills better instead of conning people. Mcfee did not pick up the problems but this Microsoft Security Essentials is updated weekly also throughout the week. There are dodgy people but sometimes people do not know they have a problem as we are not computer people.

my computer shut down on me a few times after i had been on this site, i thought it was just a coincidence but now that others have had problems maybe it wasn't.

i hope people haven't put viruses on this site but sorry that's what it seems like. it cost me alot of money to get my computer fixed and i had anti virus stuff on it. the guy who did it said it was the worst he had seen in years.

I've not had a problem but i have a mac or use my dads mac book and most virus's are written for windows not mac, so thats probably why.

 

i have seen a few people on here that look like they just sign up to advertise their stuff, i personally just dont look at them.

Try Microsoft Security Essentials its free and updated weekly and warns you of a problem, more than McAfee did.
