    I am so confused omg, I may have clicked on something but it was from TSR so it couldnt have been that bad, there were no pop ups but i left like 1 sec after it took me to the website which was blogspot.

    So I downloaded AVG and it said 3 threats one was a trojan that can apparently let someone control your PC, then my PC froze because of AVG, didnt let me close AVG.

    So I restarted my PC ran a scan with both Malwarebytes and AVG. AVG says 10 threats now and Malware said 800 potential bad things so I will remove all.

    RIP MY computer

    first scan with AVG was basically the main file (my OS)?, then the scan that says 800 was unknown/ in small files.

    Im going to do 1 more scan with AVG, because malware bites has detected 0 now

    AVG doesn't do that. Also make sure that you have uninstalled Norton. Apart from that you should be fine. But try to run a virus scan every month at least, especially if you use torrents okay? gl

    Take a screenshot? It sounds like you have one of those fake antivirus software that gives you false virus alerts to buy their software.

    Install MalwareBytes and run a scan.

    Are you sure it's a genuine version of AVG you've installed? I'd trust malwarebytes over AVG btw

    Uninstall it and install the free AVG, so you don't run in to problems when the trial runs out. Do you want me to find you the link?
