For the last couple of days while on the site I have be  getting redirected to one of the sites that tells you your computer is effected with a virus and they want your credit card number. I have be shutting off my computer and going back to the site with out a problem. Not sure if it site issue or something on my PC is doing it.

It will be a link you clicked on when you was browsing the internet. Its a common occurence. Just ignore any and all links from the pop-up site. You dont need to close your computer down. Just close the browser. You could try downloading a differant browser. Not sure what your using now. I use Firefox and that browser seems to stay relatively clean.

If the pop-up persists and you run out of patience just perform a factory reset, Doing that will remove all your stoed data. A small price to pay to remove malware

I've had no issues here. You might want to run a Hard Disk Virus Check or It is Malware.

I use the premium version Malwarebytes on all of my computers for real time protexxtion, but their free version is great for one shot cleaning.
