I'm pretty sure that neither of them will give you viruses. I've never gotten a virus from either site

I'm pretty sure WI was made in a way that it has/gives no viruses.

I don't think WI itself would give you a virus. You can never be sure tih ads though. I clicked on something and my whole computer stopped working. Maybe you can get on when ever there's an open computer just to be on the safe side.

As the others said, ads can give you viruses and you could get a virus just being on-line without protection. Get that virus wall extended or buy something else to protect you or stay off the internet. I would never get on the internet without protection from viruses and trojan horses.

I got a virus a few months ago, when I only went on: WI, WW, WKN, and WordPress, and occasionally looked at Webkinz twitter feed, so, I WOULD SO NOT RISK IT!!!

I was going to say there are several good free ones out there.
Our swim-team computer uses AVG, mentioned above.

Definitely take time to get one, even if only temp. until you renew.

We have gotten that awful "buy our spyware blocker or we will essentially shut you down" one blocked on these sites several times.

It's too risky going online without an antivirus program! You can be visiting a "safe" website and still have your computer attacked by viruses, trojans and malware.

Install one of the free ones mentioned and then make sure you do a complete scan to make sure your computer wasn't infected while you were online without antivirus protection!

In addition to the free ones mentioned, I also highly recommend downloading and frequently running the free program Malwarebytes. It often finds malware that your antivirus has missed.
