Is there a virus on HP?

    I just went to notifications because I had a few to look at.
    While clicking on one of the notifications (and I don't really know which one it was now), my computer screen went blue.  An error message popped up that the page I was looking for wasn't a real page.  Then my computer security popped up with a message that it blocked a computer attack from a HP page.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

      It's probably something in your computer.  Go to this site and do the free download, then let it scan your computer:

        Thank you!  I do have a security which blocked whatever the threat was.  I had never experienced this before.

          If you use the SuperAntiSpyware tool, be sure to click on 'Remove' when it has finished finding items.  You must click on that to actually remove them from your computer.  If the item is really bad (like malware)  it can take a few minutes to remove it.

              Was that from a SuperAntiSpyware scan?

                No that is the antispyware I have on my computer.   I'm not a techy person at all, so I have no idea what it is.

    My HP seems to be working ok.
    Think it relates to your antivirus/spyware

      I'm untalented with anything techy.  What does that mean it relates to my spyware?

    Download the  SuperAntiSpyware tool from the link I gave you and it will remove the spyware from your computer.  It's a great tool and it's free.

    Get Symantec Enpoint Protection. It is the best antivirus software I have ever had. It destroys trojan viruses and all sorts of viruses.

      Thank you!  I just rewewed a security thing for my computer last week which appeared to block whatever tried to attack.  I really don't know much about this stuff at all.  I'm technically disadvantaged! LOL

    On the other hand, there just could be a rogue ad on the site.

    It's happened before.

    OP if you get this error message again, please note which hub you opened and write immediately to HP staff.

      Thank you!  I don't know what a rogue is.  It happened when I saw I had notifications.  So I'm unsure where I was on the site when it happened.  It was something from within one of my notifications, I believe.

    I do know that for the past few days I've been getting script warnings popping up on here that have been blocked by Firefox's NoScript. It might be related in some form.
