Default Unanswered: Virus on my Computer?

Good afternoon, everyone.

Several times--recently, and a few weeks ago--my computer has gotten a virus when I was on WI. Sometimes I would be veiwing a friend's profile, other times I was just refreshing the page.

Has this happened to anyone else?

I have a feeling it might just be the web browser I'm using (Internet Explorer), but I'm not sure.

Thanks for clicking,

~DL♥

Default Re: WI Giving Me A Virus?

I am not sure.Maybe so,I think Justin gave a warning about something giving your computer Trojan Horse.I know it has happened to a few other people.Is there anyway you can check what site gave you the virus?My software allows me to do that.

I know that when my computer got a virus, my Firewall allowed me to see what caused it and delete it from my computers already ravaged memory...hope you will be able to do the same! Sorry about the virus!

Yes, I got it from WI but from an "ad" but then I heard not to use IE for a while then, bc they were having problems so I switched to Firefox and hasnt have a problem since. My virus program caught it btw! be sure to have a virus program. avg is a great free one that I use and works (it caught that virus)

My anti virus has actually stopped an attack twice while I was on WI. It happened when I would hit a link. I really should of noted the link and let the site know about it, but at the time, I was just happy my anti virus caught it & stopped it.

Never have a computer without anti virus protection!

So sorry that happened to you. You should try to install anti-virus (make sure it’s from a trustable site). Also, I would really recommend firefox. They let you know if a site you’re visiting is a suspected virus site. Plus, there is currently hole in IE that can allow people to steal your information. I got spyware 4 times when I used IE. Now with firefox, much better and faster. Hope you get rid of that virus soon.

Thank you all for the warnings.
My computer has been acting up lately.
So now I will go check my firewall and my anti virus programs to see if that is why!
Thanks again and IE is driving me nuts lately!!!
