Everyonce and a while I'll be on the internet and my page redirects to some page saying I have lots of viruses and it shows a fake *** scan on an old XP.

Is this a virus or what is going on?

Yes, it's a very old virus. But it's a virus.

Is it just a webpage? If so, I don't think it's a virus, but if you clicked or anything it might install a virus.

It's just a webpage, and I haven't installed it. I just X out of it when it pops up.

It's Just a webpage. Don't worry about it, clear your cookies, cache, etc.. and you will be fine. I saw a page like that not too long ago.

Edit: does it always show up?

You have a fake AV virus by the sound of this
So do these things

1. Restart your pc and as soon as the desktop is visible pull up task manager (ctrl+ alt+ delete)
2. In task manager look for any suspicious tasks they are normally random numbers with .swd in there somewere and end what you think is suspicious if you can open a file on your pc that you cant at the moment then u got the right task now
3. go to control panel then network settings then internet options and click connections tab and then click lan settings and you will see your http is set to a proxy take that off
4. download anti malware bytes (Google it) and do a scan it will find it


Source: me i have removed a s*** load of these


You have to do all this or it will get worse like it will stop blocking any file to be open and it will only show a fake av page on the internet but since it hasnt hit yet i think just do step 3

Or it could just be popups from websites :smile: it proberly is

That would be a pop up for a rouge anti-virus. Click X on it, clear cookies and cache.

Good on fixing it but for all the people that said it was a virus, it's an advertisement and a pop up for this ****** av
