    Got a Skype call telling me Skype had found a problem with my computer and I needed to go to a website for more info (supposedly from Skype) -stupidly, I went to the website and was immediately infected with what I think is probably malware.
    Neither Malwarebytes nor Avast! can find anything, but this warning keeps cropping up that I can't get out of unless I get out of my web browser.
    I am a total beginner when it comes to the internal workings of a computer, so if anyone can help, please use basic English, not techspeak or I'm lost
    Thanks Lynne
