"Hi, so very recently I started getting a message to "Update my Internet Explorer" (I can't even remember the last time I used IE >_< ) from a very fake looking page with a url of "http://www.lpmxp2171.com/" with a whole bunch of never ending numbers and letters after that. I have not clicked on it or anything other than closing it, however it is literally popping up on my desktop every 5-15 mins at max.I am using Microsoft Security Essentials right now and it hasn't found anything suspicious nor have I let anything install. How can I get this annoying ad to go away? Please let me know if anyone can help me with this.Thank you!"
