According to the windows user guide avaliable at the Internet Explorer page that will only pop up if you're viewing elicit photos of German Poop Videos. Shame on you Jim!

Don't worry about it. Just one of the millions of pointless pop-up ads. Even if you did get it off illegally I don't believe they would come and find you.

Dont worry about that, just stupid pop up. That info is easily available for other computers to look at, so no worry.

Don't worry about it. It's just a pointless java script that all it can do is show YOU what your pc is ... can't even send it back to whomever wrote the script. It's just designed to scare you into buying something.

Internet Explorer is FREE if you have a Windows license. Just down load it from Microsoft. We all have the license if you have a PC.

That license is sort of like paying Firstone a tire fee for every car built and then putting another brand on. I am not sure if Microsoft gets a license fee for each PC built but they used to.
