Is this "check your Norton subscription now" pop-up really from Norton?
I regularly get a pop-up that appears to be a Norton pop-up, and I am trying to determine if it is legitimate. It says: "Security Information. Check your Norton subscription now."
It says my subscription isn't active because I havenot connected to the Internet recently. In fact, I have been and am connected to the Internet, and my subscription is up to date (as verified by checking my Norton account and my subscription data). I checked to see if I have the most recent version of Nortin Internet Security (2012), and I do.
It asks what I want to do and has what purports to be a drop-down list, with the visible option beng "check your subscription now (recommended)." I have never clicked anywhere in this pop-up, because I am afraid it is fake.
When I get this pop-up, Task Manager says that Norton Internet Security is running.
When I've googled the text of this pop-up, I have found nothing.
Can someone please tell me if this is a legit Norton pop-up and, if so, why I am getting it? If it isn't a legit Norton pop-up, does it suggest my computer is infected? (Norton Internet Security has detected no problems or infections in my computer.)
Thank you for your help. The image of the pop-up is below.
