    I keep getting an alert saying "You have a security problem" and when I click it, it leads me to pcvirusremover2008.com, which looks really sketchy. These windows keep popping up telling me I have a trojan, but each time, it's a different one. Sometimes, a window pops up telling me that if I don't fix the problem, things will happen to my computer. Finally, I got one from AVG saying that a threat was detected, and it was "Trojan horse PSW.OnlineGames.2.P". I sent it to the virus vault, but I am still getting the security alerts on my toolbar, and I'm getting annoying popups telling me about the trojan. I'd like to know why they all have different names. Also, I'm curious as to where this trojan came from. A day or two ago, my sister was playing games on websites, so could it have possibly come from there. Is there a way to get rid of all these messages and the trojan itself if there is one?
