Is this a new feature or virus?

11 posts in this topic

Ever since several versions ago, I keep getting this pop-up window from time to time. It very annoyingly tells me to set Maxthon as my default browser, even though Maxthon is my default browser. Also I have checked "Do not prompt" but to no avail. This window still pops up regardless what I do. Is this really Maxthon's doing or is it a virus? Please get rid of it if it is indeed from Maxthon.

Hi Simamtk,

Could we help you solve this issue via TeamViewer?

Hi I appreciate the effort! However, I don't think it's necessary. I am banking on this pop-up being removed in future versions. I will probably keep Maxthon shelved for a while.
