For the last several weeks i've been seeing the following warning, which I know is a fake, on my laptop. I think it may have contaminated my copy of "Irfanview," which is a freeware graphics program I have used for years to printscreen images, paste them to Irfanview & crop & save them. The program acted "strangely" today; an image kept disappearing a few seconds after pasting it to IV & then my screen suddenly displayed the virus. However I've had this issue for several weeks & this is the first time I've noticed the IV connection. I would appreciate any help offered.
