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.
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/
And if you know the site it came from you can block that site with TM.
Like to here from you.

Kind regards,
Tom
