Exclamation Answered: WI HELP VIRUS HELP!!!!!!!!

Note:
I do NOT wish to panic the people of WI. I do hope to infrom someone that is in charge of WI of a problem, so that it can be looked into and so it can be fixed if something is found.

Background Story:
I was on WI in the WIki area when I got an alert that I had a virus on my computer. My computer is now Virus free, but not long after this happened my little sister was on her computer and she also recived an alert of a virus.

This time the computer was taken to our mom she said that it was a Trojen. She fixed it so both computers are Virus Free, but my mom thinks that there may be a Trojen Virus on WI.

As I have said above I DO NOT wish to panic the people of WI. I would also like to thank any one that looks into this Thank You.

You should always have anti-virus software installed and running.

I've been trying to find the ad that was causing these problems and thought I had found a way to block it entirely yesterday. Can you tell me when this happened? (I need approximate date and time)

I get crazy pop-ups from random sites, even WI sometimes. They turn out not to be real for me, just scams, or people trying to get me to freak out and buy their stupid antivirus programs.

I recommend downloading Avast antivirus for anyone... the home version is free and it does a great job. (:

Thank You all for your responses. I find it sad that so may viruses are out there just waiting to attack our computers.

My other little sister has Avast on her computer and it is good. I think that I might get it soon.

It's probably not from WI, because Trojans hide in your computer for a while, & then they come out & infect your computer randomly. It happened on my grandma's computer when I was on Photobucket, & I know the virus was NOT from Photobucket.
