I just was logging on the forum and a screen popped up and told me that I was the lucky winner of a 50.00 coupon and I needed to fill out a survey.
I thought this was a scam. The forum doesn't support this does it?

Nope, better run an anti-virus scan! :-)

My first reaction would be the same as yours. I doubt that this antique software can do pop-ups. :-)

Common, known virus, there are many similar.

Update your virus software and run a full scan to include all folders and files.

Bottom line: no $50.00.

It's probably just adware in your browser, not a virus.

Often adware takes the form of browser extensions or add-ons. You can quickly manually remove them.

In Chrome: Click the Chrome menu (in the top right corner of the browser, marked by three horizontal lines) and select “Settings.” Click “Extensions,” then look for any extensions you don’t recognize. If anything looks unfamiliar, click the associated trash icon.

Internet Explorer: Click “Tools,” then “Manage add-ons.” Click “All add-ons” to view the list of everything that’s installed. Select anything you don’t recognize and click “Disable.” When you’re finished, click “Close.”

Firefox: Check your Add-ons by clicking the Open menu (three horizontal lines) in the top right corner of the screen and selecting “Add-ons.” Now click “Extensions” and look for anything you don’t recognize. To disable an extension, click it once then click “Disable.”

If you have an Apple, you have a worm,

the only remedies are the garbage disposal, or compost heap.
