Recently, from crunchyroll, as I navigate the website, my window randomly minimizes, and a small window popups up asking if I want to install MalwareAlarm- it resembles one of those malicious popups that forcefully installs viruses into your comp whether you click yes or cancel, but I ended the process instead of clicking either of them. Anyways, that isn't the case. Why am I getting this window from crunchyroll? I've scanned by own computer with Nod32 and Vundofix, and found nothing, so I don't think it's me. However, I also trust crunchyroll, so I don't think it's CR's fault. However, this window has popped up a couple of times already. Does anyone else have the same problem? or does anyone know the cause?

Shinji signs up to a sort of advert package so he doesn't have much choice over the ads on CR. This one has ben around for a while in different forms and, although it represents a virus installation, it's just software. They just advertise by forcing it on your computer O_O. Three things to do:
1- Don't download it- just ignore all the windows and close internet each time it comes.
2- Donate so you don't get adverts
3- Use Firefox and install the advert program (i think it's called Adsafe) to block them.

In future please use the site help thread- and don't post in this section. ^-^ Thanks
