    Its on a Mac and that why its disturbing, why would a windows security popup come on a Mac. I think its adware, malware, virus etc whatever you call it. How to get rid of it.

    It is jsut an attempt to get you to click the accept button, and then it would install a virus or so.

    This should not be popping up in the first place, I always click don't allow. I think its time to throw out my 3 year old Macbook and get a new one. I am starting to think if I should do a clean install of a new OSX 10.5. I hope that helps

    This wreaks of malware. Do you still have your old install discs?
