|If you are surfing the net and suddenly a pop-up jumps up saying that your PC is infected DON'T click on it at all. |
Try ctrl/Alt/delete and kill it using the task manager. If you can't get the task manager up, click the start button and restart your PC. If you can't get the start button to work, then hold in the power button untill the PC shuts down.
If you do the above, the pop-up will be gone when you reboot and you won't get the virus, fake AV, etc.
The minute you click on any of the pop-up on your desktop, it gets imbedded in your registry and you'll have a hard time removing the problem. It may cause you to install a rootkit or other forms of infections.
Better to be safe than sorry.....hope that helps, as those pop-ups appear no matter which AV you are using.
