I have Windows XP. I received an e-mail saying that someone had sent me a greetings card. I have AVG as my virus protector so thought I was OK opening this up but as soon as I did, I was shown a dialogue box letting me know there wasn't a greeting card at all. (It wasn't put like this - I just realised it!) A blue screen appeared on my desk top with a message box saying "Warning - Spyware detected on your computer. Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer." It also said "Danger," twice. I cannot remove it from my desktop and couldn't connect to the internet for a while. Can anyone help me. I am a senior citizen and need to have very clear instructions. (It took me an hour figuring out where to ask my question - it's sad but true!) I still haven't figured out a way to search the site to see if my question has already been answered. I must "confuse" easily. Would so appreciate any help I get.
