And the very first website he goes to brings up a virus warning. You're computer is infected. Click here to clean your system. He goes, "Dad, I think Jesus hates me." I mean WTF is that all about? It was an innocuous site, The Chive. So he's smart enough not to click the stupid warning message and brought it to my attention. I shut the thing off and on and installed FireFox. Then I went to The Chive and everything was fine. I opened IE and did a couple of searches and no virus alerts. I never was a fan of virus protection cause I find them more of a nuisance than a help. And to trigger a virus alert right out of the box seems fishy to me. It seems like a gimmick to get you to purchase virus protection.
