      About 2 months ago, my computer was attacked. Pop-up appeared on the screen with loud blaring noise. Pop-up said our computer had been attacked and not to turn it off. Then gave a link supposedly to MS support. We fell for it, but were able to avoid any financial loss. My question is how to prevent this attack in the future. I use Norton 360 and Adblock Plus, and always update my computer.

      Hello tnt92fox,

      The best things you can do, which you have already implemented, are Adblock Plus and Norton. You just need to remember that no web page can tell you if your computer is infected. You just need to be mindful. Maybe you can install the web browser extension for your web browser, here.
