    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    Is anyone else having a computer virus thing pop up anytime they try to come to this forum or is it just my computer that has an issue?

    I am having the same issue. Whenever I try to read a post or post myself, I get a new window popping up with some virusy ad. I always close the window immediately. I'm glad it's not just my computer.

    run a virus scan on your puter. it's probably a virus or a worm that is making those ads pop up. i had that happen to me years ago and it got to the point that so many ads kept popping up that my puter became unusable and i had to reformat the hard drive to fix it. it's a scam. they put a virus on your puter then send pop ups to get you to buy their antivirus product.

    i'm not sure that is what is happening to you, but it never hurts to run a virus scan. also, make sure you have an antivirus program running at all times.
