I know we are drifting from FB, but this list allows one to drift for some
emails. First, the on-access scanner in f-prot is the worst I've seen for
Windows. Lots of crashes and their configuration options are a joke when
compared with other vendors. However, the on-demand scanner is pretty good.

Second, Helen, I'm surprised you got that. Are you sure you aren't infected
by some adware program? This is typical behavior of popping-up other
(competitor) companies offerings on top of the site you are visiting.
There's nothing suspicious on the alert page's sources either, so I think
it's your computer.
