Hi all hopefully someone can help me with a problem that has just occured.

I was browsing AB a short while ago & when I clicked on a page to view I got a message saying "Warning this page is under attack from viruses" I then had a program called Security Shield pop up & tell me I have lots of viruses & other nasty stuff.

I have the McAfee Security Centre installed & that is telling me everything is fine, so I was thinking it was another program trying to make me part with my money, but I can't see how to get rid of it (can't find it in the program list). Now every 5 minutes or so the darn thing pops up again.

I'm using IE7 (yes I know it's old but when I try to install IE8 I lose all internet connection) & the OS is Windows XP

Please let me know what other information you might need
BTW when the box comes up it looks a bit like the Windows security centre except when I looked at that it also said everything was fine

I was conned out of £12 with Security Shield !!!! They get you to pay your money and THAT'S IT... They don't DO anything and you cannot get in touch with them KEEP WELL AWAY!!!!
I have had the same problem, twice in the past 2 days, and both occurrences happened whilst browsing this site.

easily dealt with.

but clearly there's an issue here, either with AB itself or one of its advertisers.

Alternative way to remove security shield:

Step1, Stop its fake alert by activating the fake program with the debugged code, 64C665BE-4DE7-423B-A6B6-BC0172B25DF2;

Step2, Run a full scan with your anti-virus program; If your anti-virus program can't detect the Security Shield virus, I suggest you download Anvi Smart Defender to kill it;

Step3, Restart your computer to completely remove Security Shield virus.

Good luck.
