    There are some Windows systems that Microsoft no longer supports with updates. Which OS do you have?

    You'll also need an anti virus program and a firewall. Check the third thread in this forum called "Security Help Tools" posted by CookieGal. Download either AVG or Avast and check for virii. Run whichever program you decide and let us know the results.
