Sorry. I found this site while searching google for solutions, and I don't know who to turn to for help.
First things first, I am by no means a genius with computers. I'm a 16 year old high school student. However, I do know basics of computers and can get around one easily enough. Therefore, I would much prefer detailed and simplified explanations and instructions

I was running AVG this morning when it warned me of something called "Phoenix Exploit Kit", or something to that effect. It has infected my Google Chrome.

I done some research and I discovered that it has something to do with botnets etc.
This morning, just before I found this, I bought some things on eBay.

Are my personal details vulnerable? Is some twat in Antarctica going to be buying sunbeds using my credit card?

I'm panicing, as you can see, and I would like to know.

What does this mean? Can my AVG Free take care of it? What should I do?

Please help. I'm extremely worried at the moment.

And sorry if I posted something wrong, or somewhere I shouldn't have, but could you please help me first?

Much appreciated.
