A wizard pop-up appeared on my desk top. Below is what it says.

http://iso01.casalelemedia.com -Warning-microsoft Internet Explorer

Warning! You may have critical errors on your PC. This wizard will help you remove them.

I googled the web site & it don't sound good.

Should I run this Wizard? I will leave it set on my desk top until I hear from someone.

You were smart to try to learn about something like this before you installed it. One of the greatest sources of spyware and other malware is users downloading applications before doing some research about it.
NEVER EVER install anything that comes from a popup!
