While I was chatting in Yahoo messenger, I got a pop up warning telling me someone was trying to hack into my ID etc, through Yahoo.
I immediately stopped chatting and logged out of Yahoo.
I now cannot use my computer at all on the Internet and I cant get passed a pop up window warning me of the virus and asking me to purchase online an Anti-Virus 2012, which is also asking for my bank details.
What do I do now, I am using someone elses computer at the moment to log this.
My HP Laptop is only 18 months old and hardly used until recently it has Windows Vista Home Premium installed.
