Default Viruses- Please help!

I just ran a PC scan for viruses, and it showed me that I had FORTY-ONE, ALL from WI!
I am wondering, is it safe to come on here anymore? This is a brand new computer, because our other one crashed, and I do not want to ruin it.



Should I stop visiting this site? I do not want my personal information being displayed all over the internet.

I would hate to leave WI, but if I have to, I will.

You are not alone- WI has given me over 40 viruses. I know this for a fact, becuase the Virus Scan showed which website it wad from.

Me too!!!!!! I just posted about this on the other virus thread. It just started popping up on my computer from WI in the last 2 days. I'm wondering if I should leave too? I don't feel this is safe and am wondering how much damage has been done to my computer. Anyone have any suggestions on a safe way to scan my computer to see if it has viruses now? I'm computer illiterate and don't know what to do.

Same here- I would hate to leave here, but I will if I must. I don't want to get a new computer, and have it ruined AGAIN.

yeah,, happend to me it was an antivirus 360 one though,, and of course my mom fell for the Trojans etc. that it said my computer had and stared installing it even though we already have norton.. then she stopped right before it asked for her credit card--thank god.. because these are hackers.. they just want your credit card info and your computer..

if you get these pop ups..DONT PANIC.. a unprotected computer is better than one with one of these products.. if there is no option to close the pop up etc. hold the power button on your computer for 10 sec. and the comp will shut down..

if you have started to download it. . it will get into you computer and ads will appear when you are on the loading page for you computer and on google etc. your best bet will be to download a free malware destroyer.. and that should do the trick,,

and questions pm me.. trust me ive been there done that!!

Arrow Re: Viruses- Please help!

Andrew-same thing happened to me. Paid 200 dollars to get it fixed, too. Another 50 dollars for an anti-virus program. I know WI is safe, but with the viruses it's hard! And it tells which website it's from, too. Lots of them were from WI, even just recently! x(

haha i have this spyware cleaner thingy on my computer and my brother ran it and i had 202 infections , all cookies. its better now =]

dont leave wi! i think maybe its your settings , for the firewall. if your protection isn't high enough than you could get viruses. i dont seem to have this problem, but im not especially good with computers (if you havent noticed, by my computer vocabulary) lol. good luck with your problem.
