SO I was listening like normal to my 3 hr long electro playlist :3 and keep on finding this gem:
o gawd my screencapture dun work
It is an ad for "driverupdate.net". I went to check Web of Trust, and this is what I got: these are 2 reviews on the website:
Yeah, tried to install drivers for my printer, installed a boatload of malware, trojans, adware, etc. Whatever it was I downloaded kept trying to change my homepages, made my computer extremely slow, and I had to resort to a system restore to get rid of it despite numerous attempts at getting rid of it with multiple anti-virus software. Do NOT recommend. If you need drivers, just go to a company's website and look for them there (i.e. Epson). "


and



It uses ads posing as Windows alerts to get you to install their software, which in turn installs malware, and attempts to get you to pay for it. Do not install this software. (Adsontherun says: Could not have said it better.) If anyone has a screenshot besides jing, than take a picture of the ad, please.
