Funny goings on---Resolution down to 4 bits

  WallyD 14:54 26 Feb 2007

Using Win pro and Broadband
Machine working fine.Next time i switched on my screen resolution was down to 4bits and I couldn,t alter. Did a restore but the res was the same. A balloon came up telling me my resolution was incorrect and I should click the balloon.I finished up with a messaage ( I hope )
from microsoft asking if I wished to remove this maliscous software. I accepted and it did as it said. Is this a scam, have I fallen for the five carder ? I'm use AVG and Comodo firewall.
Anyone give advice ie has this happened to them ?
Thank you

is your screen resolution back to normal.If so I would still run A/Virus and S/Ware programs ,I would download AVG Anti-Spyware and run that,You seam to be a bit light on Spyware Programs,Have you got any more downloaded.

Thank you for your reply
No ! I only have AVG and the firewall.
I presume AVG spyware is a seperate prog. Will take your advice and look for it
Many thanks
