That's crazy! I've never heard that before...
I once read that mobs will pay $0.40 for every computer a hacker can infect and successfully get information from. I guess it must add up when you think about the 1000s that can get infected.

Thanks for the heads up about the virus! I thought those kinds of pop-ups weren't that serious. Annoying, but not serious.

I also have the AVG and it did the same thing to me yesterday. It said it blocked it. It happened when I clicked onto the section clubhouse on WI. I'd better run a virus scan anyway just to be safe. But the AVG did say it was blocked.

This has happened to me a couple of times in the past several days while visiting WI. That's why I haven't been around. I don't dare to.

I've gotten this virus page many times. I just press 'cancel' and exit out immediately. I run a full virus scan immediately and there's normally a small, rather harmless virus that was deleted. It's not severe. I don't know what would happen if somebody stayed on the page though.

Just happened to me, I am not computer literate but maybe Justin can respond. I don't want something to happen to my computer. I pay to be a member on WI so I don't get ads that can give me "bugs".

They dont think that way. They're in it to hack the computers and then get your money.

This has happened to me 3 times in the past two months. I have had AVG all the time and it said it got rid of the virus but it did not. I was on here each time when it happened. I finally decided to download Malwarebytes and Norton Anivirus. Both of these two will destroy any virus that tries to come through. I do wish that WI could run with out any ads period. Every virus I get it says it is one that it is attached to an ad. This is terribly frustrating to have to deal with .

Not this again!

I'll see what I can do!

ETA: I've gone through and played with the settings, disabling a few campaigns. Hope I hit the right one. Please let me know.

Happened to me twice in the past week! Pop-up kept saying to click to remove the virus. I did but the pop-up kept returning. Scared me . I ran antivirus and spyware programs and they came up OK, but I didn't shut down. Thanks for the advice. I've always trusted this site and hope it won't happen again.
