I would never ask a person to do something that I wouldn't do myself.

Sorry to be so hasty and for yelling, but I wanted to make sure that you got that message, hopefully in time. Did you click on anything? If you have clicked on any links or opened anything that popped up, please post what it was and where it took you.

If you haven't already clicked on the link then you might be alright. You need to terminate your browser window (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) from the Task Manager. Do so by:
  • Right click in an empty space on the taskbar (at the bottow of your screen typically)
  • Choose "Task Manager"
  • In the first column you need to find the name of your browser (IEXPLORE.exe, Firefox.exe, etc.)
  • Right click on that name and choose "End Process"
Post where things are at when you get this message.

EDIT: What security products do you have installed and running. Firewall, antivirus, anti-spyware, etc?

Thanks for the information. I just dissassembled the computer and ordered a new hard drive and everything else to upgrade it. I decided to build a good gaming computer.

Haha, nice! That's one way to resolve the problem. Good luck with the new build.
