This is a new pc. I just finished building it, so having trend-micro suddenly show "blocked" popups is astonishing. It's disconcerting. The popup reads that Trend Micro has blocked it as dangerous. The URL has linksr after the www. (Don't want to put it in order for safety reasons.)
There are also popups that are not being blocked that are strange. (Last one was something to do with Jackie Chan and cooking.) I do not open unsolicited email. I do not open email from people I know unless it has a subject that is expected. I did download two programs from CNET and one from Tucows. (The CNET one made me very nervous as it used an "installer" and then kept trying to install things other than the program I wanted, like toolbars and other things. Tucows wasn't much better.)
It is running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Trend Micro for anti-virus
Malware? Thought Trend Micro was doing that
Hard drive is refurbished from newegg.com
Any suggestions? This is worrying me.
