I'm glad your computer is ok.My dad's computer just caught a virus,too a couple days ago.So that's why I'm on my mom's computer right now.I'm pretty sure his computer didn't catch a virus from WI though.

I am having some sort of problem here too. Everytime I log on, my antivirus software pops up saying this is a dangerous site and instructs me to close the window. I have also been getting an insane amount of popups even with my pop up blocker. I wonder what is going on? I haven't had this happen anywhere else.

I've got something on my PC that is making the CPU run at 100% and slowing the heck out of everything. Arte gets stuck with his eyes shut! I have scanned and scanned and it finds something everytime but it says it cannot remove all the problems ..

I think my problem is called "Zlob. Downloader" and it is terrible!
Anyone ever heard of this? It is putting "tracking cookies" on the system. I have to borrow hubbys laptop and scared it will ruin his too!

I have security on my computer six ways from Sunday so I hope I am safe but I am already annoyed by the ad here on WI that has that drop down thingy that takes up aobut 1/3 of the page. I never click on ads, banners, etc. and to have this happening is really frustrating. I could easily click on this by mistake and then who knows what problems could arise. I have spent a lot of money to keep my computer secure and for me to come to WI and run into this is annoying.

Try running AD-AWARE on your computer, there is a FREE vers. on the internet... my DH ran it on my computer and found 500 infections, i just ran it on my computer after comming to this site and WW this morning (the only 2 i went to yestarday and today) and had 200 more infections....AD-AWARE will safly remove them...My husband also said the viruses people are getting are probably not from the site itself, but from the MY SPACE and other site graphics people are using and sending in vistor messages and PM's My husband is a systems eng. 3. works with computer, routers and Servers all day long, i trust what he says

Yes, I agree with blue eyes, and by the way, a beautiful picture as your logo. Anyway, I strongly suggest installing and running ad-aware and avast. Both are free and they protect against virus and spyware. They have worked great for me and have actually be suggested over lots of other programs. c-net has the download, but any search for ad-aware or avast will get it for you. It is free so don't sign up for anything or pay for anything...just go to another site. Hope this helps.
