What advertisement is on the screen at the time you have the problem show up?
Sorry FIA, I have no idea what ad caused it. I was in Kinzville Park with the WI window in the background when all of a sudden WI popped into the foreground with the Virus SCAM pop-up. I just quickly shut everything down to get rid of it. It happened within the last half hour though.
I received a pop-up notice yesterday stating that a virus was attempting to attack. Something didn't seem right about it, so I x'd it out. Immediately after that, I had a screen notice from my Windows Live Care stating the previous notice was a phishing scam and it had been overridden by my security.
Ok this happened to me a while back on WI and I believe it was an infected ad. I happened for a couple days and then it stopped. The best advice I can give anyone here is do not ever click on one of those pop ups that say you have a virus! That pop up is the virus itself. Once you click on it it installs itself. Unless you have a anti-virus program to stop it. You should never click on a pop up. They make them look so real that alot of times you think you are clicking on the x to close it when you actually just installed it. I use Trend Micro Pro and recommend it to everyone. It is not free, but you get what you pay for.
I also recommend you download Google chrome and use it as your browser and install the adblock extension. Internet explorer is the worst browser you can use and I never touch it. A lot of these pop up ad virus you get will actually make your antivirus quit working and stop other programs from cleaning them, unless you know how to stop the virus first.
I'm sure some of you remember a while back there were some ads rerouting people and putting ad-ware/viruses on your computers. I was one of the lucky ones this didn't happen to. About five days ago I had my windows program pop up and show me I had 4 viruses (Trojan horses and others). I don't really go to sites other then here, ww, ebay, google, etc. So I just bought Norton for a year the viruses are gone and everything is fine. I didn't think WI could have anything to do with it until 5 minutes ago. Note:WI still may not be the reason so no one panic. 5 minutes ago WI was the only page I had up. When the ads change my PC makes a little click noise ( I guess because it's loading the new info) so thats what makes me first notice a new one is up. Well I heard the noise and the ad started to refresh and Norton cut off my internet connection with WI. I got a pop up from Norton saying a something was trying to attack my computer and Norton stopped it. Everything is fine but I just wanted to mention this in case some infected ads could be back. I'm sorry I couldn't see what ad was changing because Norton cut the internet connection from the page. So I had to close it and open WI again. Just thought I'd put this information out there and see if anyone else is experiencing this.
I just had it happen to me about 15 minutes ago. There was no way to check what ads were up on the screen, because I was booted off IE. A message came on the screen saying there were 3 critical threats, and they were blocked. They were trojan viruses. I'm running a full scan now.
