  • I keep getting notices that my computer is infected with malware.  So I ordered a security program from Security Suite Platinum.  After I entered my credit card information and was approved and ready to install the program, Windows warned me that this company has no known licensed signature and was I sure I wanted to download the program.  What does this mean to me and the effects from the program to my computer?

  • It sounds like that’s a fake security software program, also known as a rogue. To find out if you really have a virus on your computer, try the Windows Live Safety Scanner. Or download Microsoft Security Essentials. Both the scanner and the download are free.
