Question about Computers & Internet
If it was a pop up NOT FORM THE WEB or while you WERE NOT online then you could be fine and a simple restore form the factory disks that only replaces the OS without a format / erase should put things back in order.
If it was a popup form the web you have most likely inadvertently installed a virus.
Perform a hard power down [unplug it] and restore from the factroy DVD/cd's making sure to perform a full format/erase to be sure the virus is gone.
That is the easiest way to get rid of a virus. SOrry but any data you may have will be LOST. and anything you dont have backed up will be gone forever.
2 lessions, dont click to install anything from popups and make backups of anything you find to be important to you because if its not a virus someday it could be something else like a hard drive failure.
