Comments on Rapid Antivirus

Some people find it kinda iidmnitating to do the updates, mostly because they are unsure if they are legitimate update requests or not. The rule of thumb though is this the little yellow shield is Windows updates, Java, Adobe and your anti virus, more often than not that is ll the major updating you are going to need and those big four need to be taken care of!
This malware is also getting into the MacBook mozilla, and there are no published ways to remove it on the Mac.
