While reading email , I suddenly had a pop up window supposedly from Msoft Security Essentials about Trojans etc and to clean the computer .
I clicked on the clean button then I was supposed to download some setup.exe ( VB script) . I did not execute the file and deleted it. It that a legitimate cleaning File ? or is this some form of malware ?
I was suspicious because I don't have MSoft Security Essentials installed . I only have windows defender.
I then scanned my computer with Malwarebytes and Windows Defender . Both found nothing.
So I assume the pop up warning itself is Malware? Comments?
