Default Answered: malacious add on

Welll, I wondered if anyone else has gotten a window that said "IE has closed this website because a malacious add-on was discovered and the site was closed. It was not the first time I have received this message while on webkinz. It gave me choices, like trying to open webkinz again, returniing to my home page, or more information. The more information said that IE shut down the website because a malfunctioning or malacious add-on had tried to access a memory that is was not supposed to access.

WOW, and on WW. I spend a ton of hours on this website, and now with all these ridiculous ads, it almost makes me not want to do webkinz at all. Is WW not monitoring these ads? Or, are they just interested in the income from them.. They are about to ruin WW, at least in my book.

Didn't know where to put this, but started here so that more could see it.

Thanks everyone in advance for your input.

Update your latest version of Java. Sometimes sites with graphics use Java, and maybe you need the latest update. I've had many sites closed down for the same reason due to unupdated Java
If that doesn't work, perhaps (hopefully) WW is malfunctioning, or there may be maliscious add-ons in which case you should turn off the third party adds to stay safe

Yes, I've had IE shut down on WW because of that same reason. (with that same message) Usually it happens to me on the Sign In page. Ganz made a big mistake putting all these 3rd party ads on their site, in my opinion.

This never happened to me because I don't use IE.
Anyways, the ads are SO annoying. Sometimes when I'm playing a game, I click an ad by accident, and I can't see the game! I have to close the ad. But at that point, I lose the game. But if you have adblocker on Firefox, you can use that, but it would block ads that you participate in like the Loony Toons one. These ads are pretty tricky...

I just got that message but on Google Chrome and i was on google...I really dont like these ads at all. I dont know what the point is if you make money but you make your consumers and players unhappy!
Hope they finally see that NO ONE likes these ads and eventually get rid of them...

i havent had any problems with WW ads. i guess is should say "YET" could happen. LOL in IE there is a function to bar certain sites from trying to load to your browser. go to tools, then internet options, then to Security tab. there in security you can input http// address of any site you want to restrict. having IE restrict that ad, actually a site, means it is probably malware.
