It's that simple.

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.
Yes please. If you receive a pop-up that is related to the rogue ad, just drop by his profile here - http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...s/justin-2375/ - and just leave a message with the time you had the virus ad pop up. Also, if you can let us know what ads were running when you saw this pop up - that can help as well. But most importantly, we need the time

You can also check out this thread - http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...97/index3.html and this thread - http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/f165/virus-604647/ for more information.

Hopefully that will help isolate the ad that is giving everyone problems & we can get it off the site...!

What I have gotten twice are "Virus Checking Scans" They are really annoying, and I have to shut down my computer to get them off I know they are fake because my computer freezes up and the WI screen goes blank...

These things happen from time to time but as long as you have protection on your computer you should be fine. The owners here really know what they are doing. If it happens be sure to report exactly what happened and when. I had something similar happen a couple of times in the last week and when i do my virus scan and malware scan there is nothing showing an infection.

This has happen to me on WI several times including 11 am EST this morning. They are fake messages about security scans. Do not follow the instructions from these pop ups. These scans will only infect your computer not protect it like they say. My security software cut them off and gave the following report. The program is called FAKEALERT.GEN. It is an adware program that may display advertisements on your system. I hope this helps.

i've had this same virus as well. i really do not want to beleive it, but unfortunately i realized it was the only thing that could have caused it. it has infected my computer 4 times, once fatally crashing it. the first time we did not know it came from here, but the continuous times sadly confirmed it.it actually happened 1/2 an hour ago, when, as the same case stated in this thread, i was on webkinz when that popped up. i rebooted the computer and it went away, though. i am at my mom's work, where they have an enormous firewall. i think the virus must have been pretty strong to penetrate it. i hope this helps, and i thank you for bringing this to WI's attention, cami , and thank you Justin, for working on getting it fixed!

This happens to me as well, maybe once or twice a week. I think it's an ad.
I have to click several times to close the window. I don't think it's a virus, I run my virus scan at least once a week and nothing shows up. Keep your PC Protected, but I am curioius to know why this is happening, even if it is an ad only.

Under "Inernet options" you can block popups.
