Thank you, if anyone here at WI is trying to isolate the ads causing this. For me, it happened while I was loading the homepage last Friday night at 10:30 p.m., if that helps. But I didn't even get to the homepage, so can't tell you exactly which of the ads it was.

I am running Firefox, and have been on here a good chunk of the day without any problems. The ad that I am seeing on the left below the word Sponsors is one for WebVirtualToy.com.

Here is my question. If I am not clicking on an ad, how can it hack my computer? How is this happening?

Is everyone with problems using Firefox?

It is defiantly NOT WI. It is your server.
I am on Foxfire. I almost always use it, been using it on and off all day for WI, and not seeing any pop ups or anything that your are describing.

Go to User CP, Edit Options and click on Subscriptions. There's also a subcribe button on top. It should give you the prices. But it won't necessarily save you from this if you get it while trying to access the homepage. It can only save you from the ads IF you are already logged on.

If you watch the ad section on the left, a new add will pop up occasionally...that's when the problems occur.

IttyGirl (my daughter) is currrently WI2, and she got the virus alert late this afternoon. Luckily I was there and she didn't click anything. We ran a full scan, too.

Default Re: I keep getting hacked while on here

Same thing has happened to me a about 3 times since 4pm. I am on IE. I only have WI open and my Webkinz account, nothing else. I don't click on any ads and all the sudden it flashes "critical" and starts to try to download all this stuff. There's no way out of it!! The pages and loading start going so fast and there's a cancel button but I think that only helps whatever is hacking you since you are clicking on boxes and pages then. I just try to shut my computer down as fast as I can. This also happened to me a few months ago when I opened WI. I hope they can figure out which ads are making this happen even though we are not clicking on any of the ads. It really is scary when you lose control of your computer.
