    This message appeared on the heidi eraser website so I assumed it was legit. Then it appeared again today on another website.

    it was not a popup more like a windows webpage message popup. (Hard to explain)

    Is this malware?

    Does windows media player have downloads it seems it would be in windows update.

    Nothing can be guaranteed to be 100% effective all the time.

    Follow the removal instructions, and hopefully, you'll get rid of it. Best of luck!
