Sounds like that is the best thing to do. Let us know what they find out.

Were they able to tell you which game you downloaded that was responsible and if so, do you remember where you downloaded it from? Downloaded games from GOG and Big Fish are very safe.

it was from I think something like free ride games I have bought a few games from GOG games haven't had a problem with them at all and Big Fish games I would just love to become a member but I don't know how their membership works or if one could pay them for a years membership all at once or not. thanks dianne

Oh, my. I just looked up Free Ride Games and all the website links have red flags from my WOT (Web of Trust). No wonder your computer got hosed! The WOT comments say it has malware, viruses and all kinds of other nasties. If you want to make sure any search results are safe, WOT is a free download and will show you with red symbols to NOT click on the link! I've been using it for years - you can get it here.

WOT, Web of Trust

If you become a member at Big Fish Games, your credit card will be debited $6.99 a month. You will build up credits each month to purchase a game.
