    Was it a post or perhaps an ad? Ad's do appear above & below the postings & change continually.

    Do no clink on anything you are unsure of. Several have posted that they have virus issues lately.

    Malwarebytes is a real program, I have it both on my home computer and all of the computers at work. It helps to keep your computer clean of "malware", or those bogus programs!

    I also have malwarebytes and it is a good program. Don't know how or where it came up on your computer though if you didn't download the program

    My Brother-in-law "the computer genius"says.......Never click on those malware adds not even the X go down to the bottom of your screen and right click the rectangle for it and close it that way. if If it does not go away shut down you machine for a while and hopefully it won't return. They are really nasty and seems like someone somewhere has way too much time on their hands. Maybe they should take up quilting... :D
