    What the h*ll is that? Suddenly popped up on my computer, while on one of the 'networking' websites, never in my life seen it before...said that my computer was infected. But Since I never seen it before, I was suspicious and ignored it.

    Good or bad?

    Boot into safe-mode (typically by tapping F8 key while starting the PC), run your own antivirus to get this crap off your computer. If you have another computer/laptop nearby, navigate over to Remove Antivirus8 or Antivirus 8 (Uninstall Guide) to get some good removal tips, including manual removal (which files/folders/registry entries are typically infected and need a good deletion).

    Cheers fellas, very much appreciated! When I first saw this pop, I thought what the.... Being suspicious of everything that I don't know (not seen this before) etc., I clicked to close the thing off, not buiyng, accepting or use it to scan. As I was just to hit the sack after my nightshift, I ran my own scan while asleep, the whole lot, and they did find one threat which it took care off...
    Just wanted to make sure... Thanks again fellas! :thumbright:
