Default Spontaneous Advertisment Jumps From WI

I need to raise a serious observation about Webkinz Inside. Twice this week Webkinz Inside spontaneously forwarded to a commercial web advertisement and this morning it was a alcoholic beverage website - Foster's Beer (www.heavy.com - Fosters). Both times the website had sound.

I know absolutely that I did not click on any advertisement. Once I was reading e-mail and the second time I was three feet away from the computer.

I had no other Internet window except the official Webkinz site. This morning I didn't even have my e-mail open.

On both occasions, when i looked at the web commercial the only way to exit it was to hit my back button which took me back to Webkinz Inside. This seems to be evidence that the commercial website jump originated from Webkinz Inside.

I would really like the WI administrators to look into this.

Thank you.

For the past 2 days, I've been redirected to yellowpages.com several times. It's really annoying. I'm not sure what's going on.

I am certainly glad that others can confirm this problem but at the same time am very disappointed that this confirms that this is a Webkinz Inside problem.

As this is a "child safe" website we really need to urge Webkinz Inside administration to look into this problem. It is terribly inappropriate that this is occurring.

I know that I have security guards against "pop-ups" but had no idea that there was such a thing as "POP OUTs" from websites.

Please take care of this Webkinz Inside.

This has happened to me, too. One time it went to yellow pages and another time it went to Spike and it was not a topic I should discuss here nor would I want my daughter to see it. I also had to click on the back button to get back to WI.
