About three years ago, my blogs sometimes attracted comments attempting to sell fake anti-virus software. Since I have monitored comments, spam comments have disappeared. But one time when tried clicking on a link, an application icon came up (on an older XP computer), and McAfee did not detect it. (All such comments have been removed.)
