Webkinz itself will not give you a virus, but each and every single time your computer is connected to the internet, there are multiple attempts to attack your computer being made over the internet! It has absolutely nothing to do with which website you are on.

YOU CAN and most likely WILL get a virus, trojan or malware if you do not use a firewall and antivirus program! Don't be misled into thinking by going to trusted websites that you are safe! It doesn't have to originate from the website! Yes, you can get viruses from clicking on ads. But you can also get them even if you just are connected to the internet and have your browser open and running! If you don't believe me, turn on the settings in your antivirus program to pop-up every time it protects you from an attack. You'll be amazed at what's going on in the background.
Please be safe. Cleaning junk off of your computer can be very time consuming and expensive if you have to pay a professional to do it for you. Trust me, I've been there, done that and it wasn't very fun.
