Hi everyone,
I was wondering if I got a virus by logging onto my planetside 2 account on 1 computer and buying some station cash( I think the 1st computer has a virus) and after I bought the station cash I went on my 2nd computer and played planetside 2 on that account. So is it possible for a virus to get into my account and then get into my other computer and give it a virus? My taskbar turned white after I exited playing planetside 2, so thats why I think I have a virus( I fixed the white taskbar by starting up black ops 2 and closing it, but I still think it happened because of a virus or my GPU) Any answer is greatly appreciated! :sweat:

Technically, account logins don't give you holes do. All I can say is, keep your operating system (Windows) updates up-to-date, and your virus definitions, by running the live update or whatever from your virus /firewall program.
