Aww... I'm so sorry that happened to you. I haven't gotten any viruses from WI so far, and really hope that I don't.

We've had ads for much longer than you have been a member here.

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.
I'm having a hard time understanding.. You ran a scan and everything was okay, but WI's ads have put spyware into your computer?

This is something that I've been discussing with both Justin and FIA the past day or so. I have gotten three attacks on two separate computers, all from WI. If it comes from advertisements, then I will look into getting a subscription. Otherwise I have been thinking about leaving.

Well..they did, but thank goodness malware programs deleted them. I haven't had any problems since-let's hope that it was a one-time problem!

I would like to say I'm glad I'm not the only one this is happening to and that it's not my imagination that it came from WI but this is horrible. It actually scanned my computer but I didn't hit the repair option. It said it found viruses on my computer. So is my computer now infected because of this ad and the fact that it did "scan for viruses"? This just started in the last couple of days, is it because they want you to buy a membership allowing you to turn off the "ads" and if you don't then this ad will keep popping up from now on until you buy a membership? The scan said it found adware, key logger, mypics worm, nimda, trojan horse backdoor, etc. What do I do?
I don't think that the ad is Justin and Wendy's doing at all. More likely it's a bad ad that slipped into the rotation of one of the ad vendors displayed on site. This happens from time to time, unfortunately.

The same program said it found the same viruses on my computer with a scan, but a scan with my Webroot virus protection software only found a Trojan, and none of the others named. Likely the 'scan' displays a pre-set list of viruses meant to alarm you into clicking on buttons on the program, which will do harm to your computer. (Someone who knows more about viruses than me, please let me know if I'm off-base.)

I'd run a scan with your actual antivirus software and see what it finds. Don't trust a pop-up ad.

Actually, I know that only two of them came from WI. It is possible that the third one did not come from WI. I trust FIA when she told me that the third one probably came from another site.

I meant, when there were no pop up ads, etc. I don't mind the WI Gear ads or anything like that, but the other ones drive me crazy.

One name of the thing is Worms.

I've been getting popups saying I have spyware on my computer, then running full scans. So far, no virus's have showed up... I think I'm going to switch to FireFox for the safety.

Well, I forgot mine, well, what they're called, but the funny thing is, we have spyware, yet when I hit the button to clear the thingy (xD), it says we need to buy it, when we did about two weeks ago. Same brand and everything.
