And besides, big problems like this are going to be discussed. He didn't seem bothered by that at all, which I'm glad for.

It was. whenever it did it's so called "scan" it picked up trojan horses. It did the scans automatically like normal ones would if you set it.

(B) I am an Insider Insider member and there are ads in the WIKI section of WI. This is where I have encountered this virus EVERY time it has occurred, as recently as an hour ago when I was looking at the graphics of the prizes for the Clean Up the Park Game.



BTW, why do Insider Insider members still get ads in the WIKI ?? Is there a setting I don't know about, something I havent' "turned on" or is the WIKI not considered part of WI's "get rid of those ads" program when you pay to not have any ads appear on WI Pages ??
I don't use Norton. We used to, but don't anymore. This computer guy said that Norton doesn't block some viruses that are very critical, and sometimes make your computer crash. He said to use AVG. It is free, and so far we haven't been failed! Just a suggestion.

I don't know how long that Trogan had been on our old hard drive, but our anti-virus program never found it or deleted it even though I have our computer set up to run a scan every day at 4:00 am.

No. It came up randomly. I'm a scaredy even though it hasn't happened for a long time.

If you click X cancel or ok the thing pops up. I clicked x and it popped up, i clicked cancel and it popped up, and i clicked ok and it popped up. I closed it as fast as i can because i don't want to get another trojan horse virus on here. We used to have norton 360, but then it expired. Whoever started this virus should stop, and leave WI alone.
