Mozilla and DriveDefender.com

Recommended Posts

okay just now i got some random popup from Drivedefender.com

saying it could run some kind of clean up of risky files on my computer.

naturally i smelled somethign fishy and told it to fuck off

i never installed this shit, and i dont know how it popped up outta nowhere

is this some legit thing that comes with a Mozilla update? or is it more like spyware/virus

 

how can i get rid of it if it keeps coming up

wtf

 

this is something about it:

popups can have there own programs ( its called malware which you/or someon on the computer either downloaded volunteering or were using IE at some point) this causes the popup to come up at anytime when you are connected to the internet

 

run a malware remover like ad-aware/spybot/spy sweeper or if you got a legit version of windows i recommend Windows Defender

 

find them all here
