Therefore, you tried to find a way to get rid of this pop-up; decided to bypass the alert and download the software in spite of the risk of getting infection, but in vain.

Remember in the post <Sneaky Spyware, Adware, Tool Bars>, we suggest you to go over your program list once in awhile to avoid any malicious software intruding on your computer without your permission? On the program list, I notice this program was installed 2 months ago while I haven’t seen it show up until 2 weeks ago; meanwhile, I can’t even remember I had opted-in to installed such program. We suggest you to keep an eye on what are installed on you computer periodically and remove the suspicious ones to guard your internet security and privacy.

Last but not the least, keep in mind that you do not have to download any software or widget in order to download Roboscan Internet Security. The message at the bottom of the pop-up misleads people to download Panda Cloud Antivirus to visit certain links or download certain software.

  • I need your help (and money!): Your friend won’t ask for your help by just leaving a Facebook message, especially when s/he needs your financial support. A tip to keep in mind, they usually ask you to transfer money via Western Union or other uncommon financial institute. Be cautious!

7.        Customize you Facebook:  Apps to find out who unfriend you, to change your Facebook color or getting “Dislike” button are just a few tricks of the scammers. Scammers usually insert adware, malware into the browser extension or plugins.
