    JI site popup for antivirus - DO NOT CLICK

    Guys, I just refreshed the landing strip and a popup came up for antivirus & free scan. Obviously, DO NOT CLICK.

    Do ctrl+alt+del and close iexplore.exe or firefox.exe if this happens.

    I fix PC's for a profession and am 100% positive it popped up from here.

    Move thread to wherever.

    Same thing happened to me when I clicked "Reply to thread" in the Hampur.
    It's happened here many times before and your advice is spot on.

    Couldnt tell you how many PC's Ive been seeing with : Antivirus 2010, Police Pro 2009, Virus Defender 2010, etc.....

    That pretty much hoses your PC when that happens. Just a heads up.

    I actually got infected recently with something.

    I've also been seeing pop-ups for "News 3 Breaking News" or something similar. I'm afraid that was a virus also.

    I also thought I would add, I also get a popup EVERYDAY from here for Gamefly. Happens both on work & home pc's.

    LID, had the Antivirus on both my home PC, and my work laptop! JI is one of the only few sites I look at on both, So yeah that rules out porn, as I only look at porn on my home PC:P Obviously they gave me a new one for work, but my home is still down, when i turn it on now, I have no windows menu, and i cant even acess my task manager to open anything, do you suggest bringing it in for repair, or have you seen this, and have fixed such an issue, thanks for any help!

    This isn't happening to me but I am having our tech guys check it out. I doubt it's a JI site problem but if it is we'll get to the bottom of it.

    Its possible that with the Jets being a hot topic all across the country right now, and being this site is trafficed even more than usual lately and will continue to be the next few weeks, spyware and viruses could be targetting it
