    Computer, Google, scam and virus?

    This morning I'm on my computer reading about some gardening tips and a big red screen appears saying Google had been attacked on my computer and trying to get personal info from me. Said nothing was taken but to call a phone number. I knew this was a scam and turned off my computer. Windows wouldn't load when trying to get back and had to run a repair tool. Got back Windows but none of my programs would open and couldn't run a scan. Finally after time have gotten back Avast and him checking out my computer.

    Anyone know what this is??? What kind of virus did I get. Ran a Malware scan and found nothing.

    My Avast full scan just ended and no virus found. My computer was frozen with this red alert on the screen. What in the world was it? I'll Google it.

    What is Google Security Warning?
    "Google Security Warning" is a fake error message displayed by a malicious website that users visit inadvertently - they are redirected by various potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). Research shows that these apps often infiltrate systems without consent. As well as causing redirects, PUPs track Internet browsing activity and deliver intrusive online advertisements.

    'Joecool44' has, as a matter of routine, refuted most of your accusations

    Thanks Joe, I couldn't find it was still looking. Guess the gardening info I was reading had something to do with it. It sure caused me some issues for a while. Glad I don't have a virus.

    You also need to watch out for those religious websites. They can be rotten with viruses (almost as bad as porn) (Dont watch it)
