    We don't have any virus software on any of our computers at all.

    We've never had a virus in the 20+ years we've been on computers.

    These guys are good as well. They are able to give very realistic popups that make you think it is your own software or windows telling you that you have a problem. Someone just surfing along that gets a popup warning might easily click on something before thinking it through. Others that are not aware of security issues might well think it real.

    I've been seeing more and more of these sorts of things especially when searching online. Clicking on very official links in google gets some dangerous stuff. I also am seeing increased warnings from the search engine browser software of dangerous sites.
