You have to give more details than that. It is likely your antivirus giving a false positive. I've been going on DRF all day with no issues.

So I've had a malware issue on drf for months. It's on page with all the pp's on it. The one with the days numbered and linked to the pps. Basically if you don't click on the pp's within seconds of that page loading you get an announcement you've won a prize and you can't leave the page.

I use Chrome mostly. I haven't seen that issue. I recently added the Ghostery add on and it seems to get rid of a lot of junk you don't want. Not sure it will help with that problem but it really can block a lot of tracking and speed things up.
