All day I have been getting weird stuff on my computer.....started out with the "warning....poor may be affected " crap........then I started to get my own security program telling me that many of the websites I use (newspapers etc...could be fraudulent and that I should not go there)....NOW it has changed again to "message from webpage" telling me that my firewall, anti virus etc need to be checked...and that I need to call a certain number./..alleging to be Microsoft..
Any suggestion as to how I M IGHT be able to rid myself of this garbage???

Fingers crossed but scan with Malwarebytes SEEMS to have done the job. Sure do hope so.
