WI is Safe, but the Ads aren't..just be really careful not to click to ads because some of them do have Virus's in them

Thats why I think the Insider Inside is totally worth it..no need to worry about accidental clicks!

However, latley there have been some very Malicious ads getting through the filters, so If your computer blocks one, I recommend you get a blocker and block those specific ads

I didn't click on any ads I was logging in and i am an insider insider member and I still got a message that popped up saying that a trojan virus was trying to get in from WI. I locked down my firewall halting all internet traffic and ran a scan with my McAfee Security Center and luckily everything came back clean. I have not had anymore troubles with logging in since, so hopefully it was a onetime fluke.

I don't click on ads here on , but something still managed to get into my computer. Every time I try to type in one of these reply boxes, a pop-up comes up and stops me from typing. It's getting so that it is becoming very labor intense, just to visit Webkinz Insider. The talking ads are driving me so crazy that I don't put my sound on anymore.
I have McAfee, all my settings at Medium and higher, firewall, etc., and I still got hit with that Spyware Protect 2009.

That sounds like a Popunder, which would be caused from an Ad already showing or a Virus you have (WI Eliminated the Popunders on the site)

That happens to me sometimes. I suggest getting a virus protecter. Such as avast! or something else. I get viruses from WI sometimes. But it always blocks it. Sometimes it can be pop-up's. Try clearing your cache. Hope i helped.

WI has no malware adware on their site alot of times simply searching the net for information creates these malware adware popups and they're usually on some sort of public search web page...simply close out all browser windows and run a disk cleanup to clear history, cookies and temporary internet files so you delete the link to the popup...make sure you restart your PC and never click on popups of any kind they almost always contain malware spyware adware or trojan viruses
