This post is also a question, and I would appreciate if a few of you would take the time to also message/ask me about this topic as well.
Lately, on MCL, and any other Beemove site, I’m taken to other sites (that could possibly leave viruses), when I try to move around the websites. I’ve…
The beemoov sites shouldn’t have pop-ups from what I’m aware of. Especially if they are asking for money (I haven’t been on in a while, but when I went back recently everything seemed to be fine.) The only times that MCL really asks for money, or has pop-ups is during special holidays, or when you manually go to the in-game bank to fuel up on Action Points. It’s most likely a virus from what I can understand. Can you describe what the pop-ups say? Is it only on beemoov sites?
I would do a virus scan just in case. If that doesn’t work, I would do a system restore. A system restore would be a last resort option though, but it does the job pretty well in ridding the computer of viruses. It’ll just restore the computer to a time period when you didn’t have viruses; however, this also may end up removing some recently downloaded applications on your computer. Basically, if you restore your computer to a time, lets say… 5 months from now, anything you had saved on your computer since 5 months ago will be removed (this includes the virus.)
But yeah. To me it sounds like it’s hijacking your web browsers. If it is, it’s probably going undetected by a virus scan because it’s latched onto your web browsers rather having it’s own file on your computer. I would do a scan with Malwarebytes.
Hope things work out!
