    That is very low. Do you happen to remember where you got "infected", so that others may take a look at the actual pop-up for themselves? That kind of kills the advice I give to most computer illiterate folks "just click no, unless you know exactly what you're downloading".

Has anyone out there filed a complaint against this company with the FTC? If anyone else sees this crazy popup download, try to capture the image. I tried to but was unsuccessful.
