Specs: Windows 7
I am getting pop-up's from you stating that my computer is at risk and I need to buy McAfee. Actually I have Purchased Order # CS1263963096 to protect 3 computers. Why am I not covered?

If it is off this site then it is probably in the page advertising (the way the site pays to provide the space and content that it does). There are programs that will block it (add blocker for example) however if you are up to date with a virus protection you are fine.

If you are getting a pop up on all sort of websites it is possible that you are infected/an automatic service is attempting to get you to drive by download.

As a backup to your up to date service you might consider a scedualed malwarebytes scan (I run mine weekly)

"I am getting pop-up's from you"

Do you mean this particular website (Computing.Net)?

We are not McAfee - this is a computer help website.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
