I have been getting those constantly today! And one about resizing the page. They have been making my computer slow. I have run 5 or 6 virus checks today and there is always a problem.

Argh. I got it today too. My computer has been acting a little whonky today and at first, I thought it was that fake virus-y thing, but my laptop was acting weird too and I didn't get the message on that computer. I think it's all in my head! I haven't panicked yet... but am going to make sure I scan my computer before I hit the sack.

It has happened to me!! I was playing around on WI and I clicked "my threads" to check on my threads and the virus threat popped up that said my documents had like 500 viruses !Mom said that everything was fine but to not do what I did last time...I have not clicked on that since!!! I don't know what to do!
I'm sorry I lost my cool there for a minute...I just don't want to have to stop playing WI!

The same thing happened to me yesterday. But I never click on anything from a pop up! This is actually more wide spread than just WI.

My parents and many friends who have been on other websites have gotten hit too. Unfortunately, my mom fell prey to it on a lap top she didn't have virus protection software- she's not on the computer that much and didn't know any better and downloaded it. Long and short of it. It's really invasive but after installing McAfee on the computer, McAfee was able to hunt it down and clean it all out.

Actually I got hit while using Mozilla Firefox.

It's OK. You will be just fine. Just make sure to NEVER click on anything from a pop up. ALWAYS go directly to a website. And make sure you have virus protection software. It pays for itself, these days. These folks are just incredibly sneaky. Justin will make sure WI is as safe as it can be!

Yeah, that happened to me yesterday, too. It's happened to me before, so I just exited ASAP. It said I had a PC.....not a Mac! I'm glad that it doesn't mean anything.
