Earlier today I accidentally opened a Lpmxp2129.com pop-up saying that “java update” background then in front it says: WARNING! Your current browser is outdated. a critical security update has been released and you are required to update your java player. When i try to close that window, a smaller one pops up in front of the warning saying: This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave. data you have entered may not be saved. Whether i press leave page or just close it, the warning and “java” page stays open. Even if i close my internet and reopen, it’ll come back, same if i restart my laptop… My Norton says my computer is clean. My question is how to remove this pop-up completely? I don’t want to rebuilt my system. Please help!!!
