    i was doing some ... umm ... stuff on the internet channel when windows, yup windows popped up on my wii telling me i had 9 viruses on my computer, but no way to eliminate them.

    naturally i am not alarmed as we discussed years ago that a computer virus cannot affect the wii. my wii still runs fine but i don't understand why windows would suddenly show up on an opera broswer. ideas anyone?

    Hmm
    Investigating those hardcore sites then?

    It is a weird one.
    Is your computer fine?
    (If its a antivirussoft one you have a problem)

    It's a fake pop-up intended to trick PC users into installing a fake virus scanner that instead loads up the computer with viruses. It means nothing on the Wii though.

    No, you're safe. Code (virus or otherwise) designed to run on a PC cannot run on the Wii.

    This is not possible. The virus got on your computer through other means.
