WI's PHP files and JS files are completely clean.. If there's something coming from WI, it's somehow embedded into the ads, which is the responsibility of the ad network to screen and monitor.

That said, an Insider Insider subscription isn't antivirus software and you will still be susceptible to viruses/spyware/malware from other sites that run ads.
We understand that the viruses aren't coming from WI. But the ads that are on the site are a problem. Is there any way to contact the ad service to make sure that they scan the ads to keep this from happening?

Same thing happened to me a couple of days ago. I went to system restore and restored my computer to an earlier date. That fixed the problem. Then I logged on to WI and subscribed so I wouldn't get ads anymore. I figure I am on WI at least once per day so it is worth it. And the site seems to run faster without the ads.

I had the same trojan virus alert thing happen to me after I tried to log in and I am an insider insider member. I had to lockdown my firewall and halt all internet traffic coming to my compuer to solve the problem. Then i ran all of the scans with my McAfee Security Center and luckily nothing got through. It is really scary that can happen though

I have a question, can viruses steal your credit card numbers if you've used them in the past? Or do you have to enter your credit card number at the time of the virus?

Was on this site last week and every thing just went "KAFLUEY". I keep getting pop-ups which don't let me type a reply. And ever since I keep getting a pop-up for that stupid spyware protect 2009 alert. Even though I have all my settings at Medium and above and also have a pop-up blocker activated.

Every day is a trial.

Unfortunatley WI does have Virus's in the Ads

Your two options are:

1) Get FireFox, and Install Ad Block Plus, which will allow you to Block all of WI's Ads
2) get an Insider Insider Membership and turn the ads off

Pop Up Blocker is not enough to keep you safe...It only Blocks Pop-UP Ads...100% of the WI Ads are on the forum (There are no more Popunders), so the Pop up blocker won't really protect you...You need a way to block to ads from loading in the first place to keep the Virus's out
