This has happened to me, but not while on Webkinz. I'll get a message pop up and say, "Attention! Your computer is infected! You must download the updated verzion of your virus software immediately!" <-- it obviously sounds fake. Just a virus waiting for me to click download. I don't even X-out. I just flip my computer switch off, and wait for about 5 minutes. Then turn it back on.

Don't worry. It's just an ad. If you can't click the red "X" it's an ad.Trust me, I know what real ones look like.

I had to take my computer to my local guru and have my hard drive reformatted. Even with Windows Defender and Microsoft Security Essentials, this virus got through.

So, be careful out there.
Yes. That system tried to get to my computer a few weeks ago. It got so bad we couldn't even get on IE or MF. Finally my brother got rid of it. But it was terrible. We couldn't even check our virus protector McAfee. All that would pop up was the add saying we had tons of viruses.

its an ad, not WI.

report it to Justin immediatly. (sp?) tell him what ads were at WI at the moment, and the exact time.

it has nothing to do with ganz or WI.

Default Re: virus attack

It's coming from being on webkinz insider. It has happened to me several times. I X out of everything till all the pop ups stay away. I eventually end up seeing it again a few days later. It's ALWAYS on this site.
