NEVER, I REPEAT NEVER click those links when you see them. What can happen IF you do is send you to website to download software that WILL infect your computer. If you have UP-TO-DATE AV software you're in the safe zone. The "rogues" want you to click those links, want to ****** you into their game so they can infect you with spyware [and other forms of malware]. It's usually a "pop-up" telling you you ARE infected and that their software program will clean your computer. If you click it and they get inside, lottsa BAD stuff can happen.

I have taught ID theft and Virus Prevention classes and know what I'm talking about.

DON'T DO IT. Don't click ANY links with WARNINGS like that!

I was on Photobucket this afternoon, and got a warning that there was a threat of 386 trojan viruses. I ran a scan and removed a cookie. I hadn't downloaded anything. I thought that maybe it was a problem with Photobucket.

Yeah, this problem apparently has been hitting quite a number of people and finally made its way into our ad networks. Apparently some Farm game on Facebook has been stuck with it for a week!!

Oh, don't worry, I didn't - it popped up, but there wasn't really anything to click ... I just pressed the restart button on my computer. But thanx for the heads-up ... I hope it doesn't happen again.
