    So I was just browsing the internet as usual. And this message pops out and asks me to get this antivirus thing to scan my phone or something. No matter how I back out or press OK it directs me to the android market to a antivirus app. So at last I installed it, but that thing pops out everytime I enter a new web page. Its driving me crazy! I tried differenet browsers and yet it keeps popping out. This is a screenshot of the meesage.

    A website nags you to install security software, and you do it? Oldest scam in the book....nag someone into thinking they have a security problem, then get them to install a security package that is at best unneeded and at worst malicious. Being in the Google market doesn't make the software trustworthy. First thing I'd do is remove that package, do some research on android antivirus and see which are best, and go with one of those. I use Lookout and it is highly rated, even for the free version. What is this virus scanning package called?

    You've got an app on your phone that is placing ads in that manner. I don't know which app it is but I'd look at any you installed about the time the pop up started to occur and delete and see if the problem goes away.
