Yep,
I got a popup earlier this morning from microsoft security essentials in the middle of my screen that listed three items of concern with a smaller popup inside the original popup for an action to be taken.
I was told those things are not suppose to popup in the middle of the screen but down in a lower corner. Got rid of the popups.
I already have had microsoft essentials for some time now with current updates.
After getting rid of the popups I used normal procedure to pull up the microsoft essentials and now running a full scan.

I could be wrong about the security popup in the midddle of the screen but I did not chance it.

Today I got a notice from Walmart about a pending shipment. I don't shop at Walmart. So how could I have a pending shipment.

I deleted the e-mail without opening it.

Ran the full scan using Microsoft security essentials. Took about 8 1/2 hours.
Nothing detected.

I think very lengthy prison sentences would end computer hacking and viruses.
But you know that'll never happen.
The libs will say that we just don't "understand" the hackers, that they're really good people, just like the terrorists.
