My laptop has been running slow since I added iGoogle on Sunday. I finally figured out how to get rid of it - actually I didn't figure it out - it just went away, but then I kept ( and am still getting) a notice saying that my computer is infected and that I need to add Antivirus XP 2008. It looked like a reliable thing - so i went ahead and signed up for it - God I hope it's real since I had to give my credit card number. I did run a scan with my McAfee security and it said I had no problems, but the computer system info kept popping up saying i had 497 viruses ( is that even possible?). Because I am not very saavy when it comes to computers, I fugured since it's a windows application it must be right. Anyway, I signed up for the AntivirusXP and when I tried to type the license number into the correct spot - it says it is wrong. I tried to go to the web site that they told me to for help ( infor @antivir08.net) and it is not an actual site - SO to make a long story short - I don't know what I have done and how to fix it. If somebody can help, I would be forever indebted - I don't know if my computer is infected or not, or if I just got taken for 49.95 and my credit card information is not out floating around somewhere.
Thanks so much,
