That's exactly the one that came up on mine also earlier today. I haven't had any more problems since then though.

Norton is pretty good about catching that stuff. I've never had any problems since installing Norton.

It hasn't happened to me since either, it seems to be one certain add that comes up randomly on WI.
And then it will happen.
If WI can figure out which one it is, I'm sure they will get rid of it.

Exactly.
I'm not too worried about it because Norton always catches it, but I want to know what ad it is or whatever's causing it..
By the way, my previous AntiVirus software was Avira. For another question, has anyone ever had problems with THAT? (I use Norton now, but just asking)

Unhappy Re: Virus??

Yep, I've had that happen numerous times. Normally I can just X off the pages, but the last two times it happened I was unable to just X off, so now I just exit all my pages, log off my computer, start it up again and run my McAfee security scan for the whole system, nothing ever shows up and my computer is still fully protected by McAfee. It only ever pops up when I leave WI as a minimized page, so I don't do that any more, which is a pain, because everyone should have WI handy!!

On my spyware scan it came up as fakealert.gen
But I got the Trojan warnings before I scanned.

As I said earlier, I think its a general problem with an IE virus. They want you to pay money to remove the virus, when they are the virus. I am running avast and have had no problems with WI. I am here constantly.
