Hi, I used a method to get a screenshot that I got from my bank when I had problems with my online banking to give them a screen shot.

Are you sure it is not related to the toolbar with the Search box?

Hi, something strange is happening with my computer.....yesterday when I clicked on the link I got a page that offered to fix my problem as long as I paid a one off fee of $99 or another ongoing fee of some dollars etc.........today the link, (by Brink) gives me precise and complete details on how to capture and save a screenshot etc.

If this pop up is related to the toolbar or search box, then how come it only started appearing last week?

It also started on EBAY at the same time, but on that website I get two popups....one at the left side top saying "Related Searches" and one at the right side that slides out with a title "Big Deals" and a further video box that says I can delete it in 15 seconds....very annoying as they practically blot out the page I'm viewing until I delete them, but they keep popping up as you read the page.

If these pop ups are normally present but suppressed by my system pop up blocker, then I think I have some annoying thingy that has come in with either Facebook or Skype that cancels out the pop up blocker and allows the adverts to run riot.

This to me would seem more logical for a virus to do as it gets the adverts in the pop up right in your face until I delete them.....constantly.......the purpose of adverts is primarily to "encourage" you to look at them with a 1 in a 1000 chance of having a sale occur as a result, which is what the advertisers are hoping for with impulse buyers.

This problem is occurring on all forums I visit, but more so on EBAY.

Incidentally, when I started logging in on Facebook again on this computer last week, (and also Sely got virus warning messages from Nortons that started quarantining some files and "fixing" others.

"Pay me to fix your computer" ...
translates as ...
"My virus infected your computer. Ha ha. I am a thief. You must pay me to fix it. After you pay ... I still won't fix it. Ha ha."

Despite what your AV says, you have malware.
