These popups are scams. Don't take the bait.
I was checking out a website online when a window with the Microsoft Windows Security logo popped up indicating infection with several types of Trojans/viruses. I did not make a note of them but the boxes all had green check marks against the purported trojans/viruses. I believe it instructed me to download something (I am not sure as I did not make a note). Instead, I immediately shut down my pc, and ran Scans in Safe Mode with Avira Antivir/MalwareBytes/SuperAntispyware/and also did an online scan with Trendmicro housecall. All the scans showed 0 infections. I am therefore wondering what this was all about as the Security alert had the exact logo as the Microsoft Windows Security. Does anyone have any insight on this? Would appreciate any replies. Thanks.
