Need help but dont know which section to go under

  cadx 00:34 16 Sep 2009

I was using my computer per usual then suddenly had this alert saying my computer was being attacked and to buy this anti virus, I did have AVG but after reading one of your answers in a forum decide to delete it as it was NOT doing its job! This thing has a heading "TOTAL SECURITY" and it seems as though its related to Windows, though it seems suspicious to me. I am getting tired of all this even though it only happened an hour ago, I have even tried to remove it from the programmes removel section and I just cant delete it, it keeps popping up saying am under threat and to get a valuation key/ meaning to buy! Help please as I am 62 and could do without all this.

also I click on one of links you gave another user to get a free anti virus, I then did the same after the download up popped another box saying to continue you must buy, so I deleted that too!, as I went to uninstall, it then said oh please dont uninstall we have a free version, would you like to try, well you can guess what I did, am so angry with all these sites.

Hello cadx - are you like me can not sleep!!
62 you are still a youngster - calm down - its only a pc and at worst you just "recover" - you do have back up?
You do find that the free programs also have paid for prog that they often try to get you to buy.
AVAST - free and good.
Good luck.

"I click on one of links you gave another user to get a free anti virus....."
What was this about? Which program was it?

You need to protect your pc as you now have no antivirus program as you have uninstalled AVG.

I suggest Avast Free for home use.

Another good program to have installed as well as Avast is SpywareBlaster click here it also is a Free program but you have to do manual updates.
