    There is not enough information to help you in a meaningful way. Just run an anti-virus program scan, "Windows Security" included with Windows should do the trick. You may also want to run an anti-malware program like Malwarebytes anti-malware.

    I have Mac and unfortunately Windows antivirus doesn't work on it. I found [spammy link removed by admin] antivirus. Don't you know Philip, whether it's good or not? I downloaded yesterday 360 total security, but it didn't help. I am afraid of getting more problems like viruses on mac, so before downloading need a professional opinion.

    Maybe if you could give us a more precise explanation as to what is happening, how your computer is reacting to the "virus" and how it is presenting itself we might be able to help or at least point you in the right direction. From what you've provided there's not a lot to go on.

    People will forget what you said... and people will forget what you did... but people will never forget how you made them feel.

    I read some of those antibacterial wipes are good against viruses.

    Not all brands though. Get the certified ones.
