Are you talking about a window in Internet Explorer? If so copy the URL and paste it in a post. Curious to see what website it takes you to if that's what it is doing.

Hello Kevinhj, this appears to be a legitimate download.

http://www.download.com/Crush-Calculator/3...4-10766409.html

So, see if you can remove it from the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs list.

Now the behavior you describe appears to be malware. The pop up screens and the malware can be putting that page up.
So after you Uninstall it (if existing,in Control Panel) then scan your PC with the free Home User version of this SUPERAntiSpyware
preferably run the scan from safe mode After you install and update it. Then delete/Quarantine all items found.

Members should NEVER post live links to possible malware. That's a sure why to spread an infection if the link does indeed lead to malware.

CrushCalculator.com
Ever wanted to know who your friends' crushes are?
Ever wondered who your friend secretly likes? Is your girlfriend or boyfriend really true to you? With this website, you can finally find out.

How does it work?
You have to send an email to your friend saying that you tried a Love Calculator which worked very well for you and would like him/her to try it out too. In the email, you have to include a customized link to our "Love Calculator".

Now, the exciting part! At the "Love Calculator" webpage, your friend will be told to enter the names of his/her crushes so that we can make some predictions. As soon as your friend fills in his/her crush list, the names would automatically be mailed to you!
