Hello, i'm new to this site and thought it might be a useful idea to come on here to sort out my problem............basically i'm not 100% percent sure but i think my computer might be infected after going on a certain website. I have been on the site before but something strange happened this time, and afterwards a msg popped up that said something like..' [i]your computer has not been scanned for viruses properly, your computer is infected with spyware'[/i] It then gave the option to press o.k or cancel, i didnt press any of these and just pressed the close button where the cross is....the box then closed and another box automatically popped up that said, 'Install spyware protection(something or other), and gave the option to either run save or cancel, again i didnt press any of these and just pressed the cross again to close the box. Now nothing happened after that, and nothing really strange has happened to my computer since. I decided to do a virus scan and no viruses were picked up, but that was only with the Virgin PC guard that we have................
..........so does this sound like a virus is on my computer, if so is there any good software that would be able to scan and cleanup anything unnecessary on my computer. Thanks

Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from one of the links below:

Download Link 1
Alternative Mirror

Once downloaded run the file, when the installation is complete make sure you are connected to the Internet and you have checked the following:

Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

Then once the updating is complete, run and quick scan and post the results of the scan.

Hope this helps.
