I certainly do not visit these sort of sites but it has obviously come from somewhere.There are other ads as well such as my Norton protection has elapsed and some about Britcoin and some with Richard Branson talking about a way of making easy money.I do not have Norton installed.Two have just appeared both saying Your Norton has expired today renew now for 2020
