Yes, this happens to me pretty often actually. It's really getting on my nerves. I always close it out as soon as I can. It freezes my whole computer. I don't know what the problem is. Good luck!

Yep I am pretty sure it has been from this site. I hope they can fix it so it doesn't happen. I have had it happen a few times.

This has happened to me on this site 3 times lately. The adware put in quarantine is:
fakealert.gen

I've followed the advice in this thread and shut down and then did full scans. Hope it goes away. It's irritating -- and scary!

Weird D: They need to fix this right away! And FAST!
Does it happen to people with Adblock Plus and stuff? I blocked the ads on this site with noscript and adblock plus, it hasn't happened to me yet.

If you think you are getting a virus from an add on WI, can't you report the add? I have my adds turned off, but I thought there was an option to "report this add".

Yes, this happens to my computer frequently while I'm on WI. I open the task manager and shut down the program that has the message. Last month I got a nasty virus and I think that it was from a PDF file on the Doug page. I haven't opened that pdf again because it was such a pain to fix my machine.

Default Re: Virus Scanner?

Since we all can assume these viruses are coming from the ads, and we are not sure the time limit on when Justin is going to fix this as it must take a lot of time, I suggest getting a WI2 subscription. It helps out WI, and I haven't encountered any problems ever since this started since I have been a WI2 member.

Default Re: Help! My computer is telling me I've got a ton of viruses/trojans, but my anti-virus isn't doing anything about it!

I hope we can stop these "viruses" soon. Whenever they pop up on my computer, my dad exits it (Tip: if your mouse pointer changes, don't click anything; it won't exit!), ends it on task manager, unplugs the internet, and restarts the computer. It's sad how people do that to others! (Cause now if anymore "viruses" pop up, my dad says I won't be able to go on WI anymore, and that's no fun!)

Hope this helps! =)

P.S. (Something I forgot to say above): People create these "viruses", then they have a sign pop up that tells you to install something to get rid of it. Really, they just want yout pay them to remove their own "virus"!

When you get a pop-up telling you that you have viruses, remember that the pop-up IS the virus. Don't click on it! Close your internet and scan for viruses with your own anti-virus program. Install the best anti-virus program that you can afford, and check your security setting. Most systems have a pop-up blocker. Your security settings should be high enough to block most pop-ups yet allow you to play games such as WW.
