Are they viruses, or adware malware? I keep getting those. I hope when I subscribe, and am ad free, that will stop.

Could you list the virus names? So we could all check.

The virues are not coming directly from WI itsself, but rather the ads. You don't even have to click on the ads to be infected. They essentially find you.

If you are in fact infected, the best thing you can do is to download a really good program to rid your pc of the virus(es). I'll provide the links to the two I know are very good below. The problem is that if you are truly infected, this particular virus doesn't even allow you to download the proper fix.

The one I use is called "spybot search & destroy" and you can find it here::: The home of Spybot-S&D!

***If you begin to download spybot and it says something like dowloading "spy doctore".....you are already infected and you'll need a separate link to get directly to the download page.

The other good one that I know of is here::: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - Free software downloads and reviews - CNET Download.com

***I don't have any personal experience with the second program, but I have a few friends that have confirmed that it is a very, very good program.

ALSO......To read more about what kind of virus this particular one is, go here::: http://comprolive.com/welcome/index..../81-sdra64-exe

That site also gives instructions for fixing it, but it's rather long and tedious.

I too have been hit-thank goodness for anti-malware programs.

I ran a quick scan and nothing, but..now I'm having it do a full scan..I just hope nothing bad come's up. I mean, I love WI and all, but you can't stay at a place that makes your computer sick. I'm pretty sure it's WI-I don't really go anywhere else on the web beside's Google, youtube, and lunapic.

I know it's not Justin and Wendy's fault, but, it's still not good.

Spybot is excellent. You can google spybot and read about it if you like. It is a very good program to have on your computer.

I've been on WI for quite awhile now and am wondering why this just started a couple of days ago? Has WI let someone new advertise that causes this or is it due to the new subscriptions they want you to buy? There has to be a reason this has never happened until now. For months and months I have had WI open almost all evening and late at night everyday with no problems until now.
