ETA: I've gone through and played with the settings, disabling a few campaigns. Hope I hit the right one. Please let me know.
Considering this started happening about a week ago, FIA told us to look out for which ad was on. The new ad I've noticed is the one with mario and sonic on it etc.. maybe it's that one?

Default Re: Viruses. Very Important

It has happened to me too a few times on WI,
We have Norton, and always shut down the pop up and run a scan, so far nothing.
Does this sort of thing come from the advertisements on this site????
If you become a Insider, don’t the adds go away? Would this rectify the problem?
Or is it coming from another source?
 
Geez, it would be really difficult to play Webkinz without this site!!!
SO many things that you need to know on a daily basis, glitches, log in’s - log out’s, blank screens,
What’s working for the day and what’s not! LOL!
Not to mention all the info you would miss……………….

FYI - DO NOT click anything on the pop up screen to remove the virus - just click the X to close the pop up and keep closing any other pop ups. Clicking "OK" activates something in it. Just keep Xing out of the windows.

Yup, I've had this so many times. If you think that you exited out waaaay too slow...then just shut it off; my computer is slow at exiting it & a popup will occur so just keep trying to exit & shut down if you are really worried.(:

Yup, you have the option to turn off the adds with a WI2 subscription. Or, you can just get a Mac computer! Macs don't get PC viruses. The virus popups I have received from WI adds say, "Your PC is infected with a virus! Run this virus scan to get rid of it!" Or something like that... I just shake my head and say "Oh you annoying virus messages, I am not quite that stupid. You should know by now that I only use Macs! The trick of saying 'Your PC is ...' will NOT work on me, O you silly virus messages."

If that ever happens again, try to look to see what add it may have came from; then pm any mod/admin...but I usually pm FIA. When you pm someone try to get the time, day, where you saw the add, PICTURE OF THE ADD(just right click and click copy..) then include the picture or just REALLY REALLY good description. This also works for inappropriate adds.
