Not a linux for beginners.
I would use linux mint instead.
If coming from Windows, Linux Mint as about as easy as it gets coming into the World of Linux, with Cinnamon version being most popular at this time for computers that shipped with Windows 7 or newer.
While anything's possible, first time I've heard of what you're describing coming from a Linux distro, if you were running Windows, would be directing you to the 'Am I Infected' line.
Although Vector Linux looks to be a popular distro based on high number of Topics & many posts within, am getting a 'Not Secure' warning to the left of the Google URL bar (have reloaded page no less than 5 times), same in Private Browser window, My only two security extensions are Adblock Plus & uBlock Origin on Google Chrome, so don't see why what appears to be a popular site would be showing this. Maybe Google is doing this intentionally, they prefer inclusion for their 'AdSense' program, some sites doesn't want nor care to participate, or there may be other reasons Google is throwing the flag, such as an invalid certificate.
At any rate, I close these Web pages ASAP, am on W10 at the moment & don't want to become infected.
Not secure: Proceed with caution. Something is severely wrong with the privacy of this site’s connection. Someone might be able to see the information you send or get through this site.
You might see a "Login not secure" or "Payment not secure" message.
This stated, I agree with MadmanRB, Linux Mint is a very popular distro that attracts a lot of newbies to Linux, easy to learn & run, am headed towards my 9th year of running the distro.
