Re: foxnews.com infected?

I have been reading all this and maybe am no great with virus, adware, spyware etc.

I have been getting this up with the fake virus scan for a few days now. And want to know whether it is something on my computer or whether this is coming from sites I am visiting. When I leave my computer idle for while it seems to come up.

Any help appreciated.

One rudimentary test is to disconnect the internet connection from the computer. Restart it, open your web browser and see if the popups still come up. You may not even have to open a web browser. If popups come up, or your browser attempts to connect to another website, then it is likely that malware is present in your computer.
