Right, I know this is strange, ive got a virus on my computer that AVG cant detect, and its looming in my "My Documents" Folder... Clicking on any folder or file I get a Popup message saying I need a new antivirus software, to be honest im quite happy with AVG and I know this is spyware, so I used SmitFraudFix... was good.. but nothing happened to fix the problem..
