 Having mysterious downloads pop up from Cafemom that you did not authorize? One is from a site called voicefive & the other is from a site called mono.vizu. I have blocked them from accessing my computers but was wondering if anyone else is having the same thing happen to them!

     YES!!! Every single time I click on any link on the CM site.  And every once in a while it tells me it blocked a "Malicious Threat."

     YES!!! I started freaking out too because I have been having horrible computer problems lately when we had McAfee and so we got rid of it  entirely and downloaded new anti-virus software and then this started happening. I started scanning my computer every time it happened. It hasn't happened today...yet...

    Yeah I close it out and do not download it. It is probably a virus they need to get rid of.

     I know it is CafeMom because when it started I was on here & Facebook, so I did a process of elimination & came up with it being CafeMom!

    A lot of the ads they put up have viruses embedded in them.  AdBlock works wonders to keep that crap from popping up.

     We have never had good luck with McAfee! I scan my computers every time we turn them on just as a precaution!

    I agree that they need to get rid of it!
