I'm going to guess (and this is only a guess) that it is a scam. You might want to get you r machine free of spyware or parasites and get a pop up blocker. In addition, please turn off messaging services.
NEVER EVER RESPOND TO A LINK THAT IS OFFERED BY AN UNKNOWN ENTITY!
No legitimate company will send out a link like that
If you aren't sure how to do this, please respond.
I got an error message this morning, without being connected to the internet saying that my computer was vulnerable to something and I should go to www.patchwindows.org to download the Microsoft Patch.
Is this real? Or is this a hacker? If it is a hacker, how can I take care of whatever it is that allowed the popup to be on my computer in the first place?
