Strange behavior only with Cnet tonight
by Steven Haninger - 7/11/08 6:56 PM
I'm getting a popup about my PC not having internet protection software and the site it directs to is something like internetscannerlive_com (http). I'm deliberately changing the url here. This is happening with both IE and FF and only when entering the Cnet forums site. I've tried browsing all over the web and don't see it. Once I hit Cnet, within a couple of clicks I'm getting the popup. I cannot exit this. Anything I click brings up something about WinDefender and performs a bogus scan of my system finding dozens of threats that Norton, Spybot and Hijackthis don't see...nor does the real Windows defender. I'm hoping this is a problem with Cnet and not my PC. Gonna shut down the rig and try again tomorrow.
