I played a new game here and within about ten minutes I was hit with a nasty conhost / proxy server virus/trojan and had to do a lot of work to get rid of it and reset my settings. So, I am just curious if it is possible to infect your computer by playing a game here. Some games also save on your computer. Do they test and check the games first for any viruses before posting it on Armorgames.com?

What was the game that you played that you got the virus while playing?
i've never gotten a virus from a game on AG.

The game was called Warp Game it happened last night and I finally got it fixed now. I really don't know where it came from since I wasn't really doing anything else at that time. I don't really know much about how viruses work, so maybe it is possible it just started to give security warnings, popups, proxy, and internet shutdown at that time.

I think they check for viruses before putting the games on the site. If I had to guess, it came from somewhere else.

I played Warp Game a few hours ago and I didn't get a virus or security warning.

I guess you can't get one if you got protection for them.
But one users had a link to a virus at his profile.
