Actually, sometimes clicking it is what actually infects your computer with the virus. The second it pops up restart your computer. Better safe than sorry.

I don't understand it either. How would THEY like it?

I discovered that some virus people make viruses so they can work for anti-virus companies! So let's say McAfee finds out this guy created a really well known and dangerous trojan. He can work for them and get highly paid because then he knows what can disalarm similar trojans. It's odd, right huh?

I have had this happen to me twice in the past couple of days but only when I was not logged in. I am an insider insider so when I log in the ads go away and it is one of those the virus is attached to. I too just close the window and any other programs I have running and then run a scan with my Spyware Doctor (my virus protection) and it comes up clean. The very first time I had it pop up on me though I had no idea that it was the virus and I thought it was the real deal and clicked on what it told me to but then I got scared and closed it thank goodness it was before any damage was done. Thank you for making this thread so people who don't know like I did knows what to do when it happens to them.

I have occasionally seen this, and the best bet when you are unsure is to click the red "x" in the corner of the pop-up as fast as you can.

By saying ok or clicking anywhere else gets you the virus... like you could be fine but it is a trick.
