Have you ever heard of-Advanced SystemCare Pro 11?
If so is it good?

I used to hear nightmare stories about Advanced SystemCare... It may have been improved since then.

The Malware Response Team at Bleeping Computer doesn't think much of it...

Makes two of us , the horror stories . Too many other pieces of software available , both free & paid , that do a much better job .

My mom is having this problem happen on her computer. It also pops up when accessing yahoo home page from time to time. I install ad-aware, but maybe I will try removing that and using ublock origins instead. Or can both be used at same time? I will have to apologize to her, as I kept thinking she was clicking on a link that led to the site hosting this scam. Now it looks like it is a weird yahoo thing.

Lakerz,

I installed AdBlock Plus in Chrome about five days ago and haven't had another problem - yet.

I don't know if this would help but I would think it's worth a try. Hopefully I won't have the
problem come back but before I installed AdBlock I would get the Security Alert code problem just about
every day and, as I said, I haven't had any problems for five days - fingers crossed.

Robert

Ad-Aware is an antivirus/anti-malware program.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adaware

Ad-Aware is not an ad-blocker the way AdBlock Plus and uBlock Origin are.

So yes you can use both Ad-Aware and an adblocker like AdBlock Plus or uBlock Origin.

Let us know if this helps your mom, lakerz... I just stay away from anything Yahoo, but I do use uBlock Origin too.

Argh, I meant to say I put AdBlock Plus on my mom's PC for various browsers (she mostly just uses Firefox but sometimes also IE). As an aside, I do have a few anti-spyware stuff installed too like Search&Destroy.

So can one have both AdBlock Plus *and* UBlock Origins at the same time? I have not experimented with this yet. Since that last time she has not had that malware page show up again.

That will help for malware that tries to install on your computer, but won't do anything for phishing ads like the ones at Yahoo. Those have to be blocked by the browser or a browser add-on. Blocking the IP numbers of the ad network using block lists inside your router is another option, but is probably beyond the capability of most people.

I think you can have both, but since they use the same (or similar) block lists, it doesn't really help to have both.

Just an update.

Since I installed AdBlock Plus on Google Chrome I haven't had any further Security Alert problems
on Yahoo mail - that was about two weeks ago.

This is the longest I've gone without an error since it started - hopefully the problem is resolved.

Robert
