Can clicking links like this give me viruses?  It did not look like anything downloaded and installed, after I foolishly clicked it.  But it took me to a "work from home" type of seminar site when I clicked it, which looked pretty phishy...

 

Can somebody educate me a bit or point me to something i should read?  ps I ran my Microsoft Security Essentials and it didn't find anything.

 

Thank you much in advance.

Looks like it was just spam in this case. . . I checked out the link. . . no malicious action. So you ought to be fine; you don't need to do anything special in this case.

Would recommend being more careful in the future though.
