Just now a small blue screen appeared, saying that if i pressed okay i could download an update for the security of my computer.

I clicked the close window button just in case.

Do you think its ok or another virus popping up.

I haven't read your other posts but I certainly would not downnload the update from there. What was the other post thread.

It only just happened.

No other thread involved.

If it is an email allegedly from Microsoft, it is a virus. MICROSOFT DO NOT SEND UPDATE PATCHES BY EMAIL. Always update from the official site only.

No it was not on an email, althoughI had just used OE, and then I was just browsing on this site when i noticed it in the actions bar at the bottom of my screen, when i clicked on it, the blue window appeared.

Don't touch it. if there is an MS Security update get it from Window$ Update not from this pop-up
