I am curious, I am running Microsoft Security Essentials and saw the new warning about the 5 in one rogue that disguise itself as an alert in Microsoft Security Essentials. My question is how does it first enter my computer? I am a little confused how it gets in first..... thanks!!

There are many ways to get infected.
Visiting a malicious URL, downloading an infected file, using P2P networks, the list goes on and on. So its best to prevent yourself from getting infected in the first place by using an Anti-Virus program and firewall.
