    I was googling an artist discography in an open tab and had another tab open wit a virus warning and to call. The tab wouldn't close and the one box kept duplicating and opening. I end tasked it. I want to make sure things are clean. Here is the first scan. Avast full scan was clean.

    Things like this happen.
    As long as you don't click on anything there you should be OK.
    Your logs are clean.

    Are those a lot more prevalent than they used to be? I realize there might happen on certain sites, but just to pop up on a Google search seems kind of crazy. But I have had such things happen on the phone a few times too.
