Good Evening,


Hopefully you are able to assist.  I am not sure how this happened since I use my laptop more than anything else, but my desktop display a "Win32/Small.CA virus" on the Microsoft error page.  WHAT ON EARTH!  Please let me know what you wil need.  As a aside, I also have a slow system as of late.  A screen will pop up that a "Script is running and causing it to slow dow; click stop to stop etc."  Could you also assist in this area?  I am willing to provide what is needed to get these issues resolved as soon as possible,
