Default I keep getting redirected to other sites!

I've been getting redirected to other sites from here for the past few days. I will have WI open, but not be doing anything (no clicking, usually just playing webkinz with this site in the background) and I keep hearing talking and getting redirected to other sites.

This is becoming really bothersome and I'm beginning to think this could cause a problem for my computer...

I have pop up blocker on, so I thought this shouldn't be happening. If this is something that WI is allowing, is very disheartening and should not be allowed to happen.

Any help or ideas?

I am working on it, everyone needs to be patient. I have to sort through thousands of potential ads to find the offending advertiser.

I thought I had found it this morning, because the "Congratulations! You've Won!" came up in the ad console... It takes a few hours to propagate, so I can't be sure 100% that it was the one causing all the issues. It is likely that it was the cause, but I am continuing my search. I have *NO* idea how that one was allowed because I had blocked the specific advertiser from ever appearing but somehow the ad network bypassed that setting and it enabled this ad!

Thanks SOOOOO much Justin! I'm not a computer whiz by any means and I didn't have any idea if I was doing something to cause this or if was being looked into. I should have realized that you would be on the case! THANKS again!

Default Fake virus scanner pop up here on WI-Help?

Hi,yesterday when I was on WI,I left the page open to load WW. A popup saying 'YOUR COMPUTER IS IN DANGER. SCANNING COMPUTER NOW.' from a totally bogus virus scanner that was NOT mine. I had to restart my entire computer to make it go away. It's one of those popups that,when you click off it,it just keeps coming right back up. These types of sites are usually ways to get into the computer to plant viruses,keyloggers,and the like. People trust this sort of sites as a virus scanner,but THEY ARE NOT. If this pops up for you,DO NOT click it. Restart your computer and run a REAL virus scan from your virus protection software you have installed in your computer.
I have pop-up blocker installed,but it didn't block it. How can I prevent it from popping up again?

If the mods and admins need the link to this potentially dangerous site,I still have it. I just don't feel safe browsing WI anymore.

Default Re: I keep getting redirected to other sites!

Thank you so much Justin for addressing this. Over the past few days I have seen different threads about similar problems and I myself have had them.
I was getting a little tired of the "it's just your computer" line and then the thread being closed.
If several people are reporting the the same or similar problems then it is not their computer.
I have very good up to date antivirus software as well as spyware/malware protection, ad blockers and I am STILL getting things from WI.

I really appreciate your trying to fix this. Too much more and my hubby is going to make me stop coming.
