    I just got a warning in one of the tabs in Safari that "Safari has detected errors". I've never seen this before at all, and it could have been a pop-up that opened up in a tab instead. I just wanted to post the SS of it, though, in case folks think something might actually be wrong. It's attached below; thanks for any help or info you could add.

    That looks bogus to me. I would NOT install regcure or anything that even remotely looks like it.

    No, I didn't; I just wanted to run it by the folks here to see. I had never seen it before, and I wasn't doing anything out of the ordinary. Just figured I'd throw it out there and see what folks thought.

    Thanks for the reply!

    That looks like a windows scare popup to get you to download and pay for reg cure which is a windows program. Those scare tactics can pop up on any machine, windows or Mac.
