Computer Virus Message

Please pay attention to how the message is being displayed.  Is it a pop-up window that appeared while you were browsing web sites, or is it an email message?  Did the message appear after the completed scan of your computer?  If the message appears after the scan, it should display information stating if the virus was deleted, quarantined, etc.  If the message came via a pop-up window or email, chances are it is a form of spyware or spam message and should be closed or deleted.  

Please contact the UMSO Help Desk with specific information if you receive one of these messages so we can be sure your computer hasn't been infected or compromised.
