Hey there TISHAnHOSS
, welcome to BC!
There are numerous "rogue" anti-malware programs out there. The MO for these rogues is to "find" tons of baddies all over your machine, then charge you to remove them. Sometimes, they even install malware on you computer.
Luckily, there are a lot of good free anti-malware programs available to you. Bleeping Computer maintains a list of Freeware Replacements for Common Commercial Apps and at the top of the list are anti-virus, anti-spyware, and other security programs. You can find the list at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...?showtopic=3616
. All the programs listed there are known to be good and clean and offered by legitimate organizations.
I would recommend installing an anti-virus program (don't use more than one anti-virus app as they will conflict with each other), one or more anti-spyware/adware programs, and a firewall program. Personally, I use Avast! Antivirus Home, Ad-Aware, Spybot Search & Destroy, and Comodo Firewall, all of which can be found on the list.
Once you've installed these, run scans with each one (except the firewall) in turn. Any issues that you actually have will likely be taken care of. If you have any lingering problems, post a new topic in the appropriate forum for help.
