Survey keeps popping up and afterwards Security warnings coming up saying that Microsoft Essentials has no fix for this malicious malware and it says to call this number immediately to keep your computer from locking up and it has emergency beeping sounds.

This popup is a known scammer activity and is not initiated by ViaSat. Exede Alex posted a warning about this a few weeks ago. Do nor click on any of the links.

I easily  figured that out a long time ago, just keeping Exede aware as they asked. It seems only Exede customers have been exposed to this prob. It's been around awhile here.

Yep, bogus.  I seem to see them most when clicking on third party links on CNN.
