Gee, I'm sorry! It possibly isn't from WI. You could very well already be infected. Maybe learn some facts about your anti-virus/spyware protection. My computer has Trend Micro AntiVirus. It also has Spy Sweeper. Once a week, You have to wake up early (my parents do this! He He!) and have it do a full sweep. It finds spware/virus/bad stuff. When the Sweep is over It does another sweep that gets rid of all of the bad things it detected. I have no problems at all! Plus, if I'm on a site that could give me a virus etc. Trend Micro sends up a pop-up saying the site is dangerous.
Did you know that you can set up SpySweeper so that it automatically sweeps on it's own, and you don't have to wake up? PM me if you want instructions.
Mine was a gift. Oh & I was just saying buy a mac over a PC because despite loosing money up front imagine how much you spend on anti virus extras, & updates, & if your pc does crash getting it fixed. Oh & I don't believe ALL mac laptops are $ 3000+
I was thinking of the newest one macbook air.
Mine is as well! I only have a problem with webkinz.com, if i stay on for more than 15 min it causes an error and shutdown in my browser and closes out all my windows. But that has nothing to do with a virus or wi
MY computer crashed this AM too. I couldn't get it running til like 11:45am, and the only window I had open all night was WI. Now I know that on Myspace & other sites, the linked photos that people put on threads, avis, etc.. can contain some kind of harmful files.. perhaps that is happening here too.. just a suggestion..
Some of the post above seem to be being a bit TOO defensive about WI.. NO one is saying WI or Justen (et al) is fishing or putting harmful or sneaky files on the site... just that it is a possibility that they are there anyways.. this can happen w/ all the image files & stuff added to pages.
The comments on this issue should not be about, "I agree w/ Justin" or "I support WI".. this is about plausability, not what we hope & WANT to be true.. bad files happen.. that wouldn't be Justins fault or WI's, just something he can look into to help us all etc.
The person who 1st posted this had many many protective software and measures in place. It just happens.. and yes.. it stinks big time when it does... boo bad files.
I hope this will be the end of it & NO one has any more computer trouble.. good luck everyone
All this talk of catching a virus is making me think of catching a cold during flu season. LOL
It's all the same. Sneeze into a crowded room and pass the germs onto everyone. Click on an infected link, and ditto, same result. :-( I don't like catching either virus, and I hope that everyone is taking the necessary precautions to protect their computers from infection. (And a little hand washing never hurts, either) LOL
Seriously, computer virus' are scary. Even the best antivirus software doesn't stop everything. You just need to be extra vigilant about where you go and what you are doing, and keeping everything updated on your protection software.
