Not from us. We don't use popups or inline ads.

Please run a malware scan on your computer

How safe are those ads that appear below my resonse? You had one that appeared for a saftyscan, when I researched it it was not free! Yes it did scan my PC but then asked me to pay to remove the Problem? I know I was redirected by the virus but when I signed on at my work PC 30 miles away, I hope a different IP Address Same ad? It is no longer being displayed?

None of those are in my opinion.
I would run http://www.malwarebytes.org/ that is what  I use
