    lj50 said to come here.

    Firefox is default browser
    I signed onto two sites, per instructions from a TV video service provider: VidUP and Openload.co Pair. Also, Openload.co Pair is active.
    Immediately, one of these sites brought up the "Microsoft" warning page, with voice, saying to call a number to resolve the issue or my web pages would be frozen.
    Pages were frozen for a while. Eventually, Windows Task Manager stopped them. Page came up next time I opened Firefox. "Restart Firefox" crash report.
    Has happened once before. Netflix account violated. Netflix helped shut down hackers. Video service works through the Internet. MBOX brand, I believe.

    Zeus virus detected.
    Website Firefox prevented from opening:
    VIRUS WARNING ALERT
    VidUP & https://olpair.??

    Symptoms not active now. Deep Comodo and MalwareBytes scans complete. No reports.
    Concerned about residual virus, malware, bad boys.
    Please advise.

    No symptoms of activity. Some jumping of screens/pages, but no damage I can tell. Seems clean. Do you agree for malware?
