Hello all.
This afternoon I got my first of now dozens of pop-up windows labeled "Security Center" telling me that I need to have Security Shield because I am infected with 20 different things. I am told at the bottom of window that Microsoft cares about my security. Harmful software detected. Do I want to continue unprotected. Windows security center reports that Security Shield is disabled and Virus Protection not found.
According to my McAfee security I am protected.
How do I resolve this? I have had 3 or 4 security warnings since I started typing this.
Thank you,
