  1. Attention, Jay! Some dangerous viruses detected in your system. Window Vista (TM) Home Premium files corrupted. This may lead to the destruction of important files in C:\Windows. Download protection software now!

    Click OK to download the antispyware. (Recommended)

    and it gives me an option of yes and no. I just bought the computer less than 6 months ago =/

    "Rogue" Program

    Hi Jay :

    Sounds like you have what the Malware-fighting "community" calls a "Rogue"
    program !? Best to start, and hopefully end, with running a "Full Scan" of the
    FREE "MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware", best downloaded from
    www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php ; just click the green "Download" button to start
    the "process" . After Installation, make sure you "Update" it PRIOR to running
    its "Full Scan" .
