AVGfree scan says it found Trojan horse FakeAlertNY . its in a file called "install stabilityworld.com" I have no idea how this came to be on our computer, much less what it is! When I clicked on heal infections, I got message saying vault was full. It also gives an option to remove all unhealed infections. Should I choose this last option or what? I want to buy the regular AVG security system, but have to wait a few days til I get paid. I have other issues here as well. I know theres toolbar programs on here, and have had lots of popup ads which have a "skip this ad"button to get it to go away. Theres also other things goin on that I just can't think of atm. I think home page is bein messed up too by some kinda spyware or something as well. Any advice would be appreciated. thx, Nanette
