I went on ebay and tried to update my profile and was directed to follow a link which I did and now I keep getting a pop up telling me I have an infected computer and that I need to use system tools to clear it.I have run MBAM and spybot and both returned no viruses were found(run in safe mode)Any ideas how I can clear this annoying pop up
Thanks and best regards to all

You'll need to download Malwarebytes again from the secure link, as your version may well be corrupted by the virus
