Off Topic: Anyone know about this annoying pop up? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • This pop up has been appearing ever since I ran into a problem with my computer I'm not sure is fixed. The pop up looks like this. I typed it exactly as it looks. I think their is a virus on my computer that is making this pop up when I'm on Internet Explorer  and now Fire Fox

    The Page at http://protectionfastscanner.com says:

  • I have the same problem!! It is driving me nuts!! It doesn't even matter if i click that stupid thing or not, it keeps taking me to this stupid site. I don't even trust it. And ever since that thing popped up, it started lagging me like hell. Expecially when i'm trying to open my emails on haotmail.-which i can't! T~T Did you fix your problem yet? If you did, can you tell me what you did please? TT~TT
