No, I do not use McAfee. Only Trend and LavaSoft Ad Aware. But Comcast is my provider.

Comcast is my provider as well and like Florida, it only happens when I am on this site.

This hasn't happened to me . . .
So I'm really not sure, but you should probably scan it if you haven't already.

I just had a thought about this. Yesterday, everytime I tried to click the forum button at the top of the page the add would open up. I was definately clicking corectly, but it was as if the add got in the way some how. I can't remember which add was at the top of the page when the spyware thing came up, but I wonder if it is related.

I will try that again right away, wondering why it's happening to others who are on here also?

I use McAfee... we have Verizon, not comcast..


This ONLY happens on this site.

And our "family desktop"... I NEVER use for webkinz.. I'm never even on that.. I use my laptop or the computer I built my son... and THESE are the computers affected...

So far our common denominators are Comcast and clicking on the Forum at the top of the page. I honestly don't pay attention to the ads.

I am running a McAfee virus scan on that computer right now (it's been running for 1 1/2 hours!) So far it hasn't detected anything. From the Google-ing I've done, a few places said that neither McAfee or Norton 2008 detected it - so it won't even necessarily show up in your program files. I am SURE that WI does all that is necessary to prevent these types of things from happening, it just does seem odd that several people are experiencing the same thing.

and, I'm not computer illiterate.. I have built my sons.. I know how to virus scan, spy scan etc...

it only happens whenever I have WI open.. otherwise I NEVER receive these pop unders and windows just popping up..

My computers are virus scanned and spy scanned everyday.

If WI runs banner ads and such, it's probably coming in on one of those. It's quite common for that to happen. Try to keep an eye out for which ads are showing up when it pops up, then report them so the WI staff can block them (or talk to whoever they get their ads from; most ad companies will block it also).

Ok so scratch Comcast, and forum searching...

It just happened again on my daughter's laptop that I am currently on. I was attempting to modify my post because I noticed you posted your ISP and it showed up again.

I am sure you have GOT to be computer literate to be able to build one !!!!!

...I would guess that means it's not my system either since I am on a different laptop now... two totally different computers, same problem ? ? ?

I don't ever use our desktop for WW or WI either. Its 'all the way down in the basement...' LOL! The laptops are just so much more convenient

I'd say it's a big hobby! Between WW, WI, building computers...and oh throwing kids into the mix - you are one busy gal!

Seems like that has caused problems before. Unfortunately the last two times it happened there was nothing in sight, like I said the last one was just a few minutes ago while I was trying to modify a post ???
