I have recently gotten pop ups to install urgent firefox update firefox-patch.js. This is a malware file. I know I could try various pop up blockers, which may or may not block this malware pop up, or may block "good" pop ups. What I would like to know is, is there a blacklist in Trend Micro Internet Security that I can use to prevent the download of a known bad file (firefox-patch.js, etc.). Someone else in my family might accidently click to download it.

Hi John,

The Mozilla site advice you to install Ad Block plus.
And if you know the site it came from you can block that site with TM.
Like to here from you.

Kind regards,
