Re: Alarm Your system is in danger web popup

I would suggest a second opinion scan using the FREE version of Malwarebytes. You can find it here http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

Do not accept the trial of the Premium version.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
