I frequent the website:
primarily to follow broadcasts of professional snooker not available in the US.
This site seems innocent enough and lists links that take you to the content you desire.
An example is
live.robinwidget.com (Warning: Open this at your own risk)
This site assails you with popups, the most common telling you to update flash to be able to watch. In the past I have been able to safely ignore these and watch my snooker. Lately the site occasionally breaks in with the warning from Microsoft that it has detected a virus and is locking my computer to prevent its spread. I then have to shut the browser completely down, sometimes by restarting the computer. To my knowledge this has never actually resulted in a virus and I normally can return to watching after reopening the browser.
Is there a way to defend against this or am I just courting trouble by visiting.
