So i was watching a video on youtube and when it was done i closed that window and saw this window had popped up behind it (screenshots provided). Just wondering if that's legit or if its some kind of scam. I have adblock and it usually blocks any kind of popups.


More: I couldnt add the screenshots to this post so i just uploaded it here

Do a malware check with several malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.

Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware. All these programs have free versions.

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.
