Posts Tagged ‘pop-ups’
Have you ever been blissfully surfing the web, when you click on an interesting link and all heck breaks loose? Depending on what anti-virus/malware software you are using, alarms go off and instead of your link loading, a big read stop sign shows up with the ominous message that reads to effect of “All who enter here are lost!” or less dramatically… “This site is known to contain malware or viruses which could harm your computer. It is recommended that you do not proceed.”. Seen that before? How many times have you ignored it and proceeded anyway? Be honest. Later did you notice weird things happening, like unexpected pop-ups, or new toolbars, or your computer running funny? Yep. Its just like running a stop light. Bad things can happen.
