    A reader of one of my mags has asked readers to highlight what he believes is a scam.
    When opening Microsoft's Edge browser a message flashes up saying that he has got four viruses in his system. He has then used AVG to check and they report there was no threat.
    The flash up screen appears to be a click trap for PUPS.
