Hi Justin, I 'm not trying to cause problems, I didn't even start this thread, but when I noticed them pop up for me to thought it best to bring it to attention. I posted the screencaps I took. I just don't understand why I'm getting them from only this forum. I bet in a few days we'll hear more and more post that their getting pop-ups to. I have Norten and other Anti-Spy programming and they seem to be running fine. This is strange and since it only happens to me when I'm in this forum makes it even more strange. I hope we can all get this figured out soon.

I bet WI has no viruses, you're not quite sure that the virus is from WI.

I think too many are entirely too quick to jump onto the "WI gave me a virus" bandwagon. I have to say that just because a site is the one you use the most or the one you go onto the first time you see a particular pop up add that might signify a virus doesn't mean that that's where you got it from. I spend most of my time on WI and last night Safari completely crashed on me to the point I had to wipe it from my hard drive and start over. Was this the fault of WI and some malicious code contained therein? No!! It was something I clicked on in another site that I briefly visited for 2.2 seconds while looking something up. I just think that you should stop and think before pointing fingers of blame. And Justin I think you're showing remarkable patience through all of this.

I'm not complaining, I feel I'm being helpful. I never said I had a virus, just that I'm getting pop-ups. My Norton says everything is fine. If anything maybe the title needs changed so it doesn't scare anyone. I'm relieved Justin says everything is okay. I will take his word for it. I would hate for WI to crash just because everybody who noticed a problem wouldn't bring it to attention because their afraid of being bashed. I am checking into things on my end. Just Noticed a patern for the pop-ups and thought Justin would like to know.

I saw these popups too, I'm sure that the people who run this site need to know that this is going on. I go to lots of places on the internet and my popup blocker works everywhere else.I know I have only seen those popups posted earlier right here.

Hi all,
Just adding to this. - I'm on WI every day, on multiple computers. I have never once seen these pop ups that you have posted. I'm *not* saying you are lying. But could there be an issue with your resolution on the site? I heard once (not sure if it's true) that banners are made to fit a certain size. If it doesn't it looks a little odd.... some are made too large as well and it looks like a "pop up". Also some are made to "pop up" (but it's not really - just expanding) to get your attention.

Another thing is the possibility of spyware on your computer. I remember we had an issue with it long while back and it was a browser "hijacker" - would take us to not-so-good sites and not so good "pop ups" would appear in ad areas on sites...

Just a few ideas.

I come on WebkinzInsider everyday since I joined, and I haven't had any issues. It has loaded slowly before, but that's probably just my computer. I haven't gotten any viruses, or anything like that. The only thing I've gotten was a pop-up on the homepage advertising cursors/pointers. No big deal. Are you sure the viruses/popups aren't from other sites you've visited?
