Default Re: WI popup/virus problem

I have scanned my computer everyday, and found no problem. I've only seen the add twice, and both times it's scared me to death, although I know it isn't true.

I'm trying the blue skin, just because I'm tired of the adds, and it's taking a while to get used to, but I like it!

Justin~ Has the virus actually infected computers?

Thanks to a tip someone gave, I installed Ad Block. It blocks every ad except the Plushie Pals, WI gear, and webvirtualtoy which I feel are safe and trustworthy.

I'll continue to scan my computer daily to see if there are any developments. Justin I do not think you should worry too much; most of us know nothing about computers so our complaining is just because of our situation, not necessarily about your website. We are just upset but that does not mean we are blaming you directly for our computer problems.

Yeah, Justin, this isn't your fault... I'm so not computer savvy, and we're just falling back on eachother to get help with virus and malware protection! No worries!

Thank you! I am trying my best here and am making reports to the ad networks, but I cannot be sure that anything is being done as I don't really have many specifics. I've tightened the filters as well to filter out any ads that have "user interaction" and that may have "multiple advertisers in the campaign" to see if that will help as well.. I don't want everyone on the forum to install ad-blocking plugins because that will further compound the financial issues.. I believe that all of the ad trouble we've had over the past few months have increased ad-blocking from users, furthering the revenue decline.

I am just doing the Ad Block as a trial run...if it helps with the virus situation, then I will definitely look into the subscription program. I want to do everything I can to give back to this website...
