    Someone is spying on me

    Just a second ago, near the top of this page, a pop ad appeared that said 2 people were spying on me. Does anyone have any information on this? I wanted to click on it to see what it was, but was afriad that it might be a virus so did not go to the site.

    I don't click on anything, here or elsewhere if I can help it. Viruses are everywhere, so like you, I'm careful. I hate ads too by the way!! I ignore them as best I can.

    Always practice safe "clicking". If you didn't ask for it specifically, never click on an ad for safety.

    If you have adequate computer protection, spying shouldn't be an issue...check your setting and contact your security software if you have concerns.

    Do not click on this, I had to go into Remove Programs to get rid of the darn thing.

    It's just an ad for a "security" program. It means nothing. Ignore it and a new ad will be up there before long.

    It is it the top of my page right now. I will not touch it. I never go to any stuff that pops up on my PC.

    I think those 2 people are spying on me too! Just ignore it, it will go away. Don't believe everything you read.
