Browser needs updating
“Please Update Browser” link may install on your computer potentially unwanted programs like: toolbars (Sweet-Page Toolbar, Awesome HP Toolbar), adware (Enhance Tronic, Feven 1.8, Coupon Buddy) or other forms of malware.
You should always pay attention when installing software because often, a software installer includes optional installs, such as this “Please Update Browser” adware. Always opt for the custom installation and deselect anything that is not familiar, especially optional software that you never wanted to download and install in the first place.
A much easier alternative is to run Firefox with Yahoo! Firefox is fairly flexible and will be able to transfer your applications.
I am using Windows XP Home Edition, version 5.1 with Service Pack 3.
On several websites I keep getting the following message: You are using Internet Explorer 6.
On these infected or compromised websites, cybercriminals will display a pop-up box stating that you need to updated or install a piece of software.
If you click on the “Download” or “Install now” button, instead of installing an update, you’ll agree to download an adware or a malicious programs onto your computer.
