It seems to me that an ad is running KW that could be causing issues for everyone. The ad is specifically targeting kids by with the Private Messaging picture with a little (1) by it. When you click it, it directs to an off-site link saying you have to download something to see your private messages, which I know is a lie. It feels like it could someone putting a virus inside that program and infecting computers. Tell me if I am wrong mods or jr. mods.

Sounds legit.  To quote every mod, admin, or jr. mod that will ever post on here, "Comment Jordan."  Annoying, but I don't want this thread to get locked. as it's a good warning.

My whole goal in life is to get AlphaT to debate Teh_Skittlez as an Atheist and for Teh_Skittlez to debate AlphaT as a Christian.

lolololololololol

That awkward moment when you realize that you couldn't see that amazing debate because you're not old enough to see the P&R section... -.-

This is not a KW ad, it sounds like you have a virus or a bad cookie attached to you browser.

Make sure you clear your browser data and cookies and make sure your anti virus is up to date and running.

ads which are shown here are based on countries  or the content u searched in your browser recently and there are some ads like play here they are totally for kids for playing games if u by any chance see strange ads like u have won etc then u might have installed a plugin in your browser check it in your settings and disable the plugin.
i hope it helps

I used to get that ad too. On my phone especially when I first got it (so obviously it wasn't a virus.)
Currently I just see a lego ad, Scotland ad, and an animation and gaming school ad.

Its not a virus, viruses are on your computer, not internet and cookies store data, you can't get a bad cookie.
Its an advert on the internet.

If your on a computer all you need is AdBlock, an add-on that blocks ads on your browser. 

Unfortunately apple products like iPad, iPhone, etc can't get adblock but they generally filter most ads, not all!

“You’re not deep. You’re not an intellectual. You’re not an artist. You’re not a critic. You’re not a poet. You just have internet access.”

If in doubt, Google.

its an ad that leads to a virus.  People set up fake ads to download stuff, then it leads to very bad viruses which screw up your whole computer, so don't click them!!  I know this becuz my stepmom works at staples, and deals with this stuff a lot.  she fixed my laptop.

Be the different one in life. Remember, normal is boring! Enjoy being the odd one out!

yeah I know, of course it will give you a virus (unless u have anti-virus) I was saying that the actual thing isn't a virus so no need to worry, just get AdBlock to block ads.
