Has she tried restarting it?
Just because it's slow and it's freezing doesn't mean the computer has a virus.

Default Re: Can webkinz have viruses??

My dad always blames me for viruses and stuff, but most of the time it is my mom because she thinks she can go on any site she wants, even if she hasn't heard of it.

Well, back to the point. I have never seen a virus on Webkinz.com, but I do suppose it could be possible. Don't worry though, someone could have got a virus on it a week ago, and it might've just decided to react.

Although, freezing and slowness doesn't sound like a crazy virus, or maybe it's not a virus at all. It might be just lack of memory or maybe something's a little messed up.

I suggest restarting it first, and seeing how it does. If now, I'd download the newest, safest version of a virus software, and scan your whole computer.

If there are signs of viruses, you should take it to a computer store or something? Not sure on this one, because my dad usually fixes our computers, lol. I think Best Buy is good for that?

Good luck

No, I am 99% sure that Webkinz cannot cause viruses.

Mac computers can't get viruses from websites so if you have a PC then in you can install McAfee SiteAdvisor. If you have that, then in the bottom right corner of your internet screen, it will either have a little green box that says McAfee and a check mark, but if it has a red box, then that means that we website you are on will cause a virus. If it's a yellow box, then they're not sure. Hope I helped!

Macs actually can get viruses, they are just less common. People who make viruses write the majority of them for windows. People do write Mac viruses, they are just less common than Windows viruses. Also, most Mac viruses are obtained from downloading illegal software

Same with me.


Anyways, I have never experienced any virus behavior from Webkinz, I would suggest clearing all cookies from your computer and deleting history. That will make your computer faster. Although it's probably not a virus, the video effects can make your computer slower unfortunately.

How old is the computer? Webkinz is a pretty secure site, It could have been from a previous site, that somebody else was on. I t could really be from anything, it could be from an email, a picture, a down load there is a lot that could happen. I hope it's nothing serious!!!

Default Re: Can webkinz have viruses??

Well in my opinion, it wasn't Webkinz at all. It could have been something she was on like a week ago! That's what happened to my Dad's computer. My uncle said what I just explained. He's awesome with computers. He could remove any virus! Anyway, try taking to a computer repair place. Also, sorry this is happening. It's annoying, I know.

Webkinz does not exhibit virus behaviour, and ganz CERTAINLY would not want viruses on it's site- that would drive people away and make less business.
However if someone were to hack webkinz, then it could potentially. but that would be VERY doubtful.

I do know, however, viruses prefer to be in the background unoticeable (unless, of course, it's rogue malware in which case it will annoy you as much as technologically possible) so that they can steal info from your computer. The fact that the computer is running slow could be due to a virus,, which is doubtful, or it could be because the CPU usage is high, or perhaps your Flash or Java is running slowly. I'd be worried if it were running slowly and then if it shows the Blue Screen of Death, I would get worried, since some viruses DO cause that.

However, don't worry. I am 99.999% sure it is not a virus. If it is, it is most definitely NOT your fault, as no virus besides Rogue Malware would want to pop up and show itself. That would defeat it's purpose. Good luck- your best bet is restarting your computer
