I received an MSN instant message from a friend of mine while I was half asleep dumbo here clicked on the link thinking it was legitimate. I even made the cardinal sin of clicking on the run button when a program of all things appeared on the screen! It didn't seem to do anything at first but now (occasionally) I'm getting IE popups even while I'm working in Firefox.
Basically the messages are saying my machine is infected and click here to buy a fantastic product to fix it blah, blah, blah... x'ing out usually produces a new IE window with different crap each time.
It has been identified by AVG and Ad-Aware but doesn't seem to have gone (although it is less frequent than now).
Can anyone help again please?
So sorry for being such a numpty!!!
Thanks in advance
PS. How do I attach a couple of screen dumps... I've saved them but can't find an attach link... do I have to upload them somewhere online? If so, where?
