Hello

I use Cyberghost VPN and reviece this pop up when i try to start it.


http://gyazo.com/1ba8c2ef1bda1ae65e73947cb99be175

It doesnt look like any legit Cyberghost pop ups, and i fear this may be a hacker or something thats trying to get me to install some weird software.

I run Kaspersky and Malware bytes and they have never really interfered with Cyberghost before, but i am really just trying to avoid accidentally downloading malware.

Is this pop up legit? (from Cyberghost)

Can intruders trick people into installing malware this way? (with pop ups like this)

Thanks for any suggestions.

Thank you for the fast reply!! :)

When I get home from work I will try these out. I'm sure it is nothing, but I've had bad experiences with my PC (Windows 7 x64) being RATted and accounts being hacked etc.

So I am a bit paranoid about these crude looking popups I sometimes get telling me to update or install stuff.

My PC is free of RATs as far as I know, since I've wiped all my partitions and restored Win 7 with my legit OS discs. And I run premium anti virus scans daily and have nothing coming up.

Thanks again, and if anyone else has any other advice, that would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks again
