I went to www.familywatchdog.us
, I entered an e-mail address to search. Then all of a sudden, a message with Internet Explorer in the blue description box appeared saying that I may have malicious spyware on my computer. Another screen, that looked like one of my drive or folder directories appeared. Bars, like those allowing you to see how your download is progressing, appeared on the white screen, and were filling up.
I didn't give any permission to download anything. And there was no screen that prompted me to save anything, which leads me to be wary of this.
I immediately closed down all my windows/screens, and ran my antispyware. It didn't find anything but cookies. I will try running my Avast virus scan next.
This is the second time that this occurred this week. The first time was with a different site. Avast found nothing then.
What is this and what do I do about it?
I have Windows XP with sp 3. I'm using Avast 4.8, free version and Superantispyware.
Any help will be appreciated.
