I have a friend/client running Windows 8.1 and Internet Explorer (all current and updated) that he uses IE to access his Comcast email. We leaves IE running to monitor his emails but after sitting idle anywhere from 1 hour to several hours the fake virus warning with audio comes on (so this happens without any movement or clicking by the user). The IE tab changes from the current site to flash yellow and now says Microsoft Support (but obviously it is not). The only way at this point that IE can be closed is to use task manager. The user has a current trial version of the latest Malwarebytes program and has scanned the system several times, the first scan 2 weeks ago produced a few PUP/issues and cleaned them but the warning messages came back. Subsequent scans did not find any issues. This is the first time that I have seen this issue where Malwarebytes did not permanently resolve the issue and where the warning message pops up even when IE is sitting idle. Any suggestion how to fix this would be appreciated! My latest attempt was to reset IE - waiting on result. Possibly uninstalling/re-installing IE and/or installing Chrome?
