I'm a noob but I need help. Somehow, after surfing the internet (all fairly safe sites, I thought, the only odd one was a wordpress blog?) I get this random pop up, supposedly from my security center, asking me this:
Do you want to block this suspicious software
Risk Level: High
Description: This worm spreads via the Internet as an attachment to infected messages. It sends itself to email addresses harvested from the victim machine.
I'm running AVG Anti-Virus 2009 free software; it isn't showing that I have any infections. I also have Ad-Aware 2007, but it hasn't popped up to warn me about anything. I'm running Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 3.
Should I be worried? How can I get rid of this? Please help! Thank you.
