I need to let everyone here know something about viruses. I just encountered a virus scam here on WI.
Have you ever had a small window pop up telling you your computer is infected and needs to be scanned? These are scams, obviously, unless you are absolutely positive that it is YOUR computer telling you that.
Now this is the important part.
The whole time you leave the little virus scam window up, they are looking through your computer and copying data from it. This is why you need to close the window IMMEDIATELY. Do not leave it open and go ask for help, close it.
This was kind of hard to explain, so hopefully I was clear.
Perfectly clear, thanks for the heads up. I know a few members who have had this happen. Justin works his (__) off to try to keep those things off this site, and he does a great job. One or two slip every now and then.
thank you! actually this happened to me, so i called my dad (he is a computer whiz, his job is actually to fix computers) and he told me to scan the computer. i forgot how, and i left it up for him to come and fix it. when he scanned the computer the weekend before, there was no viruses, and when i did it again, there were, like, 500. i wish i would've known that, because that would've saved my computer. but, i still saved it (thanks to my dad, hahaha) so thanks for helping other members! rep!
I am VERY careful about the places I visit but yesterday while I was on this site, my AVG popped up and said I was being attacked by a virus. I have always trusted this site so just clicked it off. Thanks for letting me know that a virus can even be on this site. SOOOO SAD!!!! I don't understand why some people think it is great fun to destroy/infect our computers. SOOOO SAD!!!!
