Is This a Virus

  1. For the last two days when I log on to bigcharts.com and as I move around the site, I get a message that tells me I need to down load an older version of Java to make it work. Then it asked me if I want to down load it.

    When I try to cancel the message my computer locks up and the only option that I have is to restart my machine or download the so called java bitch which I won't do.

    Has anyone else seen anything like this.

    Thanks for any replies and have a happy new year.
     
  2. LOL "Java Bitch" I am using java update 11 and it works fine.

    JA_LDP

    maybe or just annoying spyware. does the message come up on other sites requiring java? what browser are you using?

    just for the sake cleaning things up, try uninstalling all versions/updates for java you currently have installed and run malwarebytes. reset your browser settings to all factory default. then go to java.com and install the latest one. 99% sure these 4 steps will fix your problem.
     
  4. Thanks for the replies. It only happens at bigcharts,com.
