Malware Alert

For the past several months I have been getting an email every day from a website named Font of the Day, which gives you a link to download a free font every day. I had never tried to install any of them until today. I found out that you cannot install any of these fonts unless you agree to let it install a browser named Astromenda. That looked suspicious to me, so I looked it up. Astromenda is a piece of malware that will embed files deep inside your operating system, bombard your screen with ads, and interfere with your Web browsing experience. I am going to delete the folder I have all those emails in. Please do not fall for this trap.
