The same thing happened to me. It said I had over 300 viruses on my computer. It then made me install a Virus Software. After, my dad looked up about it, and it was a FAKE Virus Software! Beware of it. It was called IVirus or something like that.

Wolves. same happened to me too yesterday at the same time, I don't EVER get pop-ups. I have them blocked but somehow this thing got through. I just closed down everything, ran my virus program etc. and i seem fine today, well except for the usual WW glitches.

I think that that thread is the most helpful about things like this.

I just got a blocked pop-up. That has never happened before either. I usually just get the virus warning. That is real because i run the full scan on my computer and it finds it. Yesterday it came up Troj/Java DI-H and was critical risk.

Yes, whatever you don't don't click okay for them fix your supposed badly infected computer. Close out the boxes, and if they do not let you close them out, do a hard shut down on computer by using your off button.
Myself and a friend (two weekes later) both have gotten this virus and it is a strong virus that takes over your computer, not allowing you to run your virus software.
The pop will also show up right after you leave WI.

Also do not come to WI using Internet Explorer, as that browser seems to be the one that the pop up is allowed to show up on most. Use Firefox, Opera, AOL, etc., as your browser and it seems to alleviate the pop up problem.

Sorry this has happened to you.

Thank you for that information Breezer! I only have IE which could be why I always get it. I do just "X" out, but there is still something on my computer. When I run the scan, it is there and it shows up critical. I guess I just don't make it any worse when I don't click any extra buttons!

NR 1991, there are a few browsers you can download safely like Firefox and Google (I think), like Balletdancer mentioned. Just be careful as the tech that fixed my computer said the virus may set dormant for a couple of weeks. Protect yourself!
