Default Unanswered: Virus Attacks~ please help me out!

NOTE: If/when you see one of these "pop ups" again, please look at the advertisements running on the screen. Then, send a PM to a staff member with that information. --FIA


I'm constantly getting virus attacks ffrom webkinzinsider (yes, I know it's that) Usually happens when it's on a tab or when I'm gardening on webkinz. It's been happaning each day, for like 4 days now. We close it down. We've ran virus scans, everything seems to be in order. Just it's annoying, and unfortunately I know it WI for some reason. It always closes down and it's ALWAYs when I'm on or was just on WI. It's the one where they say viruses are attacking, and they put in a virus scan (no matter what you click) that puts the virus in. Simply closing, it's starting to scare me and get on my nerves. Anyone know anything about stopping it/why it's happening?

Try getting a new anti-virus software. I use Avast and it's free too !
Are you sure you don't have any other internet windows open or pop-ups?

If you get one of those warnings that wants you to click on something, DON'T click on any of it. I usually just hit 'control alt delete' and exit out of everything. Then you can run a scan from your own virus protector. I also recommend Norton.
Usually, those 'warnings' are fake and there is nothing attacking your computer, as long as you don't click on any part of that warning.

Default Re: Virus Attacks~ please help me out!

When I opened up WI just now, a pop-up thing came up from the virus software and said there was a virus detected on this website
So I would try getting a new virus software maybe? Or talk to a professional computer guy, tat would help. xD

Well, there's like giant hacker people going around and putting viruses on computers, so I would be careful.
I know this isn't the safest thing to do, but when it happens to me, I turn the WHOLE computer off by pressing the button on the computer part (not the screen.)

Default Is there a virus on WI?

I just saw a thread in OM that says they got a virus from WI.
I'm uncomfortable now....
Help mods? I don't want my computer to get a virus. :/
Thanks for your answer.
I'm heavily padded on WI though, I have noscript blocking ad sites and a adblocker blocking the banner ads.
