Question about Computers & Internet
This thing keeps popping up every half minute and if I ignore it , it continues into some scanning telling me to install virous remover 2008. Should I download or is it going to be a problem. Earlier today it was telling me I had some trojan horses. I ran my AVG scan and it found nothing.HELP!
Update your AVG and rescan your system, if there is a virus / spyware / trojan - this should be able to identify and resolve it. Alternately, right click on the red shield and disable it / put up a check on don't remind me again. (This i'm guessing is the windows firewall, you should be safe enough with just AVG running)

You have a Rouge Anti-Virus malware, this is a virus do not download it will make it worse, the idea is to take over your computer and force you to buy the antivirus program which is actually just a list of places to download free virus removal software, All is not lost, if you have Virus software do a scan now and try to find it, if not download AVG Free Anti-Virus and that will take care of it.These people are from Russia and once they get your credit card number they will try to empty your bank. Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. lone99star
