It's impossible to spread viruses through browser/flash games.

yeah because if it was a game giving you a virus there would be lots of people complaining about it and the game wouldn't have made it onto AG if it did have a virus because they have people to test the games to see if it's AG worthy and whatnot, and even if it got hacked there would be a hole lot more people with this problem. what exactly happened though, that could help me figure this out

I'm assuming he went to a website with spyware/malware. His computer didn't notice until minutes later when he left the site and started playing Spiral Knights.

well i was thinking of something that happened to me awhile ago (months before i got an account) i went to misc. games and that redirected me to what looked like a legit virus message but using that site to get rid of said virus would have given me a virus so i was thinking something like that may have happened

To play spiral knights did you have to download anything, because sometimes computers freak out when they try to download something...

It uses Java unlike all the other games on AG that require flash. Therefore it is only expected that there would be more issues than other games.
