Default Answered: My computer has gotten a virus from WI...

Today i was making my daily check-in on WI when my computer screen just froze completely, and at the top the internet explorer said "Not Responding", then a screen came up saying "Your computer has been infected by many viruses and trojans!"
My computer has also gotten slower by this...

Help...anyone?

Here are a few links that might help:

(In the above link take note of the comments by the moderator; the pop up itself is really an advertisement & not a virus per se, but it is good that you did not download the software that the advertisement is trying to sell.)

My internet used to (On my ancient computer) freeze up & then shut, and not be opened for a few moments. Then it was fine.
Is there anything wrong with your internet? Did you install the (fake) 'protection program?' I know there's one out there...
*& I've seen Justin comment on these threads sometimes. Perhaps you could ask an admin... I've never seen someone get a virus from WI, although I've seen reports. It normally turns out to be from another site...

My computer used to do that. But We got a better spyware protection and it doesnt happen now. I'd suggest telling your parents about it and maybe you can get protection from any bad on this site. Actually, it's probably not the site, its the advertisments on it that bring in the problems.
Hope I helped!

I'll probably ask Justin about this. I never install those pop-up protections. I only use whatever there is to install on my computer documents.
