It's probably like that Windows Security Tools pop-up virus. It's the one that pops up and says some virus was detected and starts automatically scanning. Then it tells you that you are infected but you have to buy their AV software to remove it. IT is the damn virus. What I find interesting about it is that even after the several years it has been out, Malwarebytes is the only software that removes it. Kinda makes you go hmmmmmm...

Does nava shield come from clicking on random sites?

I see.

That's odd. The link and video in your original post were not there before.

Panda Anti-Virus is da bomb for those who have not tried it. It's lightweight and operates in a cloud. The more that use it the more effective it becomes.
This one is the most carefree of all, I would never use McAfee, Norton, AVG, AVIRA, or any of the others after the Panda experience.
Panda will decrease your computer start up time in half. It gives all those bloated anti-virus programs a real run for the money.

I am using the new Microsoft Security Essentials. I also have a few others for backups. The new MSE is actually one of the highest rated avs now. That Panda looks interesting. I'm just not sure about it always having a connection. If it uses any bandwidth I can't use it. I also like Avast. It is a very good av.
