Default Re: Will WI Really Harm My Computer?

I had a malware/trojan horse message pop up yesterday, too, and freaked because I just got rid of a nasty computer virus and I thought it was back! I shut everything down, ran my scan, and everything was fine. Very scary, though. Like others here, I'd never had a problem on WI before yesterday. Whatever you do, DON'T click on any pop-ups!

Default Re: Will WI Really Harm My Computer?

All day yesterday WI would freeze up my computer. This happens every once in a while-some ad (even when not clicked upon) will just wreck havoc on my computer and freeze everything. I had some strange ad popping up that was never clicked turning wi pages into their ad pages...I just stay away from wi on those days.

I have had issues in the past. Sometimes when they change things around, I think these advertisers will sneak some malware in there. Don't click on ads, anywhere EVER. Not just here either. If you need to remove something vicious, go to download.com and get Malewarebytes anti-malware.

I've gotten messages like that twice, and they were inapropriate with bad words. It's ok though, I think it's safe here

I have had problem on here once, but that was on my sister's account on my computer. I forgot what it said, but it made my computer slow and there was a pop-up message and I automatically got off of my sister's account.

Just what I would of said.I haven't had problems other than not being able to post on one of my computers. (the mac, which is really fast) I have to use my own computer in my room now.
