    When trying to access internet get pop-up which looks like from Google that phone is infected with viruses. Advises downloading an antivirus to clean. Of course I don't but cannot get rid of it or access internet. Have to shut off phone. I'm about ready to chuck it & buy an I phone if this can't be resolved.

    Welcome to the forums. You could try clearing data for the browser in settings - apps and then restart the phone.

    Welcome to Android Central! Does the pop-up only occur when you go to certain sites? Has your browser's homepage been reset to an unfamiliar website? Those kinds of popups are usually associated with shady websites, so the bottom line is to avoid those websites.

    This is happening to me as well... In my case, it is related to Pinterest... It began happening when trying to read the articles of those pins that I liked... It is very annoying because it seems like sometimes, when browsing from Chrome, it erratically shows this warning... I also think it is a fake alarm, but now it's starting to scare me because my husband's phone is also showing these signs and somebody told me it could be something related to our home's IP... Don't know if this is true...
