Default Answered: URGENT ADS POPPING UP ON WI! (Mod and admins viewing, PLEASE READ!!)

You might want to check WI to see if any ads or viruses got in because I had a fake pop up security scan thing pop up and it almost or might have gave/give us a virus

I was on WI when this happened. Plus, i'm having a LOT of ads of opinion mart only pop up on WI. I think a couple of ads and viruses may have slipped into WI. Can you see if you can get rid of them mods/admins?? have you had it pop up members?

Webkinz Insider does not have "pop up" or "pop under" advertisements. If you see an advertisement like this while you are viewing Webkinz Insider, please run a virus scan on your system ASAP as this is an indication that you probably have some sort of "malware" on your system.

If you ever see an advertisement on Webkinz Insider that concerns you, please contact a member of the staff so that we can verify whether or not it is coming from Webkinz Insider and, if necessary, take action to remove the ad from the site.

I've had those a year ago, but then they fixed it. It was something about a ton of trojan viruses. I haven't got them recently, though

Sorry this is happening. I haven't had that pop-up.
Try running an anti-virus program, such as Ad-Aware to check if you have any viruses on your computer.

XP Antivirus is a terrible, terrible TERRIBLE thing, I should know, I lived with if for a week with a stupid security system.
Obviously, don't click on it. I heard that the particular one I faced is on the site (XP Antivirus) So if you get it, you'll know because it will have constant popups telling you your computer is 'infected'
This one is easy to get rid of if your Security was failing miserably. If you can find the file yourself (Firewall should've let you known if there was a file accessing your computer, it should end with .exe) You go on search, type it in, and check the files to see what date they came in from. If they came in the day you got the virus (or around that time) Make a note of the locations, and restart your computer. Usually there are two of the files, so when you delete one the other one copies itself to make sure you still have the virus. ()

On the starting screen press F8 and choose to go into Safe mode. Then you'll be able to delete the files permanently so they can't do anything.
Go back into regular mode. This should stop the popups for a bit, and while it's doing that open up your security software to scan the files they were in, the recycle bin and if they pop up again.
If should dissapear of it's own accord in a few days. when the security finds in. Meanwhile don't click on the popups or the fake security symbol.

So? I got a virus that destroyed my family's desktop from one of WW's rogue ads a few years back. Viruses are everywhere. I'd run a anti-virus scan anyway.

If that anti-virus window comes up, I was told by a computer repair guy to hold down the power button on the computer until your computer shuts down completely. He said that just clicking on the control-alt-delete buttons and starting task manager to close the window won't get rid of it completely from your computer.
Don't click on anything on your screen if you see that pop-up.
