My computer started doing some strange things in the past few days and I think I have a virus. I was online and an error message came up saying I had a virus infection, so I clicked the button and it started to scan my computer. It says I have over 9000 viruses on my computer. How did this happen? I have an antivirus program, isn’t that supposed to stop the viruses? The program that detected the viruses isn’t even my normal anti-virus, I don’t know how it got there, but at least it was able to detect those viruses. It wants me to enter a credit card number to pay for a full version of the software. Only then will it remove all the viruses. What should I do?
