I stupidly clicked on an email link that looked like it came from the USPS about a package that could not be delivered. Part of the problem was that we had just returned from a trip and there actually was a package that the USPS could not deliver. Anyway, it took me to some weird website. As soon as I realized that I probably had been had, I closed it down and rebooted. I then ran Malwarebytes, which found 56 PUP threats, all of which I let it quarantine. I then rebooted again. Everything seemed fine for awhile, but then a few minutes ago, AVG put up a message saying that it had found a threat and suggesting it remove it.
File C;\Documents and Settings\Cynthia\Zuokiz\uwyd.exz.exe
I came over to this PC and searched for that file and found that it is an application written by Western Digital for use with my hard drive, which I believe is a WD.
So now I am not sure what to do. AVG has locked the machine so that I cannot run anything else. I would have posted a screen shot, but I can't.
I assume that I should just let AVG do its thing, right?
