Exclamation Remove Ads that Give us Viruses!!

I have seen ALOT of these kinds of ads lately... EX.

"You have been selected to win an IPad3! Click here to claim your prize!" Or..

"You are the 1,000,000 Visitor, Click here to claim your IPhone5!"

Younger kids may not know there is a virus attached to those ads, and they may give out personal Information. Everyone, if you see types off these ads, PLEASE take a screenshot and send to an admin.


Here's a real Picture example, I blocked out the town, cause it was kinda close to where I live.
DO NOT CLICK ON IT!! EVEN IF YOU CLICK "DECLINE" IT WILL PUT A VIRUS ON YOUR COMPUTER!!!

Default Re: Remove Ads that Give us Viruses!!

I see those ads a lot as well, such as a big yellow smiley face with a message saying, "CONGRATULATIONS! You are the 100,000th visitor! Click HERE for a prize!" Then, there's a tiny message in light grey at the bottom saying, "Some limitations apply." I never clicked them because I thought they might have carried viruses. Thanks for telling us this!

I've been seeing these all over WI lately. Of course I know not to click them, but some younger members might not know. I really hope they get removed soon.

Default Re: Remove Ads that Give us Viruses!!

I finally had to go back to adblock also. I tried to not use it, but even without clicking on any ads here, Norton was blocking this site sometimes. The last straw was when I had just logged on here, and Norton logged me right off saying it had blocked a highly dangerous trojan virus called trojan.tracur. This was first thing in the morning, with only this site open. I always run scans each night, so I know it was this site.
I feel like this site isn't really safe without blocking the ads. I want to stress that I have never even clicked on the ads.

I no longer use Norton as I have found it not to be reliable anymore. I have switched to Microsoft Security Essentials.

I just use Ad Block now to avoid those ads.

Works very well and you can control what site the ads are blocked on( Ie for WKN)

Default Re: Remove Ads that Give us Viruses!!

I've been seeing them all over this website, and it's terrible. :/
One of those ads caused me to have my entire computer crash, and I don't think the kids' parents would be very happy if they thought this website was virus-safe and ended up ruining their computer.

I use Adblock, and it works. All of the annoying ads are gone. (:
