Pesky Pop-Ups...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Fortunately, it's no longer the bad ones [ya know the 'p_rn] but they're still pesky and irritating nonetheless.

Someone visited my blog last night. It's new a visitor. I clicked on the name and as soon as I did that I saw another window open up. I thought it's just the Bravenet exchange window that bravenet blogs offer. I closed the extra window. After I did that, another window came up this time bearing the logo of my anti-virus program. It was a WARNING that my computer was invaded by virus! NOT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was one of those pop-ups that want you to download something to 'get rid' of the so-called invaders!

Since I was using my new laptop, I kinda' panicked a bit. So I clicked on something without thinking clearly. I thought it's my anti-virus that came up. It's only when I saw that the dang thing was blinking did I realize it's a trap! Arrggggghhhh!!!!!!!!!! Good thing I was able to stop it before it downloads anything. Geeeezzzz......Anyway, I ran my anti-virus just to make sure no virus went in my computer. Thank goodness no threat was found.

To say I'm pissed is not even close! I am royally pissed that I want to...to...to....nevermind...it's not worth the aggravation...still I was aggravated! Hay.....

you have a pop-up blocker? you can enable the pop-up blocker so you won't be annoyed by it, also so that any virus threat will be nipped in the bud, so to say. :)
