I will randomly get this pop up from "apple" (or at least it will have the box with the time clock so it looks exactly like apple)....but it says that I might be losing information and that my computer will crash soon and it wants me to download an antivirus software from http://scanner.rapidantivirus.com

I cannot tell if it is a virus TRYING to be downloaded on my computer...or if it is really trying to help me. Can someone please let me know if I should go to this site and download it or not? Email me Meggies14@aol.com with the subject being MAC RAPIDVIRUS. Thanks!

Just a scam so ignore. Have you by chance permitted download of any software with codecs?
