It's that simple.
Really? Im assuming Justin is the site owner?? ...and with every pop up virus we are suppose to pm him directly? Can someone confirm this?

My computer is heavily protected, not much more I can do on my end. And this is the only site where it happens...its been fine for months than all of a sudden last week it started. Ive spoken to other adults from other ww boards and they are having the same issue here.

I've had it twice in the last few days. The last one was just a few minutes ago. It's frustrating. Thanks to all of you who are trying to fix it.

Flame Boy ~ Have you gone into your Options to disable the advertisements? You need to manually do this once you become an Insider Insider subscriber.

To do so, at top of page under the banner, click on Quick Links (top right), then scroll down to "Edit Options". Once on the Options page, scroll all the way down to the next to last question on bottom of page, and answer "No" with regard to receiving the advertisements. Finally, be sure to click on "Save Changes". This should eliminate the ads you're seeing on the top and side of your screen.

Hope this works for you. Good luck.

There are several fly by virus programs that are themselves viruses. It will bring up what looks like your control pannel and tell you have many viruses and if you click ok it wants you to download a program. If you do install it it will lock your computer down untill you either purchase the program or format your drive. I am a computer repair person and I tell everyone if that comes up just to click the x and then restart your computer.

Today, and now, I believe them. I was in WW playing as usual, with two tabs open- one for WW and one for WI. I got my high score on Goober's Lab (yay!) and noticed something. The tab for WI changed to "My Computer Online Scan"(see attachment). I clicked the tab, to see what was going on, and up popped a message saying: "This webpage has a virus. We need to scan your computer." (or something like that.) I went back to WW, then clicked the tab again. Another message popped up: "This computer still holds a virus from this internet explorer webpage. Please click OK". I Xed out of the message, and Xed out of the Virus Scan page. It also closed WW, without warning. I really don't know what to do. I'm trying to believe that WI doesn't have a virus. I love WI. Please help!
This is not part of WI or WW...they are fly by virus programs that are themselves viruses. Anyone on the internet can get these no matter what site your visiting or even if you not on a webpage. If you have an open port to your computer these can pop up. The best thing to do is to X out and then restart your computer. Clean out your chache and do your own virus scans.
