    Mine came on XP asking if I wanted to upgrade to a better browser, and listed ALL the browser icons. When I tried to hit the close button or X out of it wouldnt close, I had to close the browser. Tis came on a new install of XP with very little if any erroneous surfing having been done. I immediately ran Malware bytes and it showed up as Trojan.FakeAv
