Actually, I believe it is an ad. When I first joined ATS I had a similar pop-up come about on my screen. I accidentally clicked OK thinking it was
part of my computer, and it brought up a "fake" computer scan page.
The only time this ever occurred was when I had visited ATS, and my computer is virus/malware/worm free.
Yeah I had 7 ATS tabs up and it kept popping up and taking over my page. I thought it was funny it said it was scanning my PC and mentioned windows
when I have an APPLE! I had those pop up ads. They are annoying! I had to shut down firefox and use Safari for a bit. Firefox is annoying but I prefer
it over Safari.
I got it also SMART VIRUS ELIMINATOR haven't figured how to rid it yet. Almost every time i go to a new page it pops up 2 days now. Very
annoying.Help!!It does the scan then links you to a page to pay 2 options to clean it up It also reset the google search to gala search if that helps.
Then I found a SPYWARE DOCTOR program to fix it and they wanted money also after they ran a scan. Sounds like a scam to me.Still confused how these
sites can just overrun your computer. Peace.
I've got bad news for you. If you clicked on it, you are already infected and if you have run legitimate cleaning tools and it is still happening you
are going to have to format and reload your computer.
