Well, never careful enough for such IE pop in the taskbar...That the first time it arrived since tested RC and now RTM.

It's a shame cause i've been researching at the same time info helping someone else around here (toshiba L300-20d keyword!!) and did got trapped...

A fake security scanner went on at the same time on another ie open window, and pop me up an install.exe.
That why i had to close all windows so fast, and clean.

I would like have known what was going on with the deviantArt site...

No, not yet...That was me while browsing their site.

Looks when you're clicking on link when you browse inside their site, this happen...NOT when you're on the page of the member with the download link

They might not knowning it, or do they?
