Should I trust this pop-up anti-virus?
It recently appears on the down right corner of my computer every time I browse the internet. I never asked for this.
What can I do about it?

You probably installed this by downloading some freeware that included this as a bundle. Next time when you install choose ‘custom install’ and uncheck the various pop ups that come bundled.

the pop-ups Could be triggered by a cookie buried somewhere in your HDD, so give it a good cleaning and throw-out ALL the cookies you find
