    Suspicious email link

    Wife clicked this link in email. She said it made what looked like installation box on task bar and then went away.
    Have scanned with Sophos Home and MBAM.
    Nothing was found.

    This is the link
    not safe.

    Not sure what to do next

    Don't leave live links that might be malicious.

    It's currently an ad that's often linked with porn sites, but that might change frequently, probably after money/data, etc., maybe cookie-stealing = any logged in sites/webmail/etc. will need checking/password changing if it's been clicked.

    Don't even open a dodgy looking email, never click on a link inside a dodgy looking email.

    Thanks for the reply.
    She normally does not, but now I am sure she won't
