Facebook compromised?

  1936 14:31 28 Jun 2010

A friend told me that a strange message came up on my Facebook last week regarding an I Phone and as they know I am a Luddite and know nothing of such things they suspected that my account had been compromised and possible my computer as well.
As a result I dumped Facebook but a day later I received a message thanking me for re-establishing it.
Can anyone suggest what is going on? I use AVG and no problems have shown up there but there may be a way of checking if ones computer has been taken over that someone could suggest.

AVG is that all you have.
maybe try Malwarebytes free version and update it before you run it.

I'm not sure if I keyed in Malwarebytes but I got a thing on the Wen called, "Anti Malware" and as soon as I opened it a message came up from my AVG saying that it a Trojan and I had to get someone in to clean the computer.
