Yes! DO NOT download this. It is an ACTUAL webpage and it's a scam to get you to download harmful things to your computer. Exit out of it as FAST as YOU CAN!!

It happend to me, too.
And I once got a virus that shut down the whole computer.
I have no clue where it was from, but I'd only been on wi that day.
Luckily, the computer is fixed.
I still get pop ups that "scan for viruses",
But my mom has warned me to exit the boxes asap!

Please look at this thread. http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/f165/virus-604647/


Just a note to everyone having problems with viruses:

Justin works very very hard to keep WI a safe place for everyone and to keep bad ads away from the site. Just like everything in the world, nothing is perfect. Every now and then things pop up, and *may* harm your computer. If you are seriously concerned about getting them, do one of two things:

1. Get a security system/virus protector. They are expensive, but usually can secure 3 computers. Very good thing to have,

2. Save up for the WI Insider Insider Subscription, and then turn off the ads.

I, for one, do not think we need more of these virus talk threads; we already seem to have a ton. If you get a virus pop up, Justin wants you to VM him telling him:

Time:
Ad:

He knows that a few ads on here can be bad, but it is not his fault. He tries his best to control it. Like I said, if you are really concerned, try to do something about it instead of blaming WI/Justin for infecting your computer, because it is not their fault.

Any info is helpful, thanks! I ran a check and I DO NOT have a virus. So Shutting it down seems to be a good thing!

Goodness! Thats not good! This just happened to me too! I freaked out and started up my antivirus softwear. If my parents find out that WI has a virus I'll never be allowed back on here again
