I have an HP Pavilliondv3000. I noticed this new program icon in the bottom right corner named, Antivirus Action. It started popping up alerts that my programs were all infected and could not be executed. Then it would offer me the opportunity to buy a virus program for 50 dollars... I politely declined. I opened up my program list and this new friend of mine is not listed. I can't open any other program due to them all being infected. Please help - I have no idea what to do.
