I did a virus scan and it said it blocked a major one. Am I okay?! It says I don't have to do anything but will it come back?
And I don't know what site it had it on, it was an ad I didn't even click on and I am panicking!!!
I know I won't go on that site anymore but am I okay? I really don't

Best Answer:

Jimmy C: A lot of those warnings are fake, just ads to make you click on them and install their malware on you r computer. Ignore them and do not fall for the ones that want to scan your computer.
You should have a working antivirus on your computer though. It is worth the money to buy one, a real one.

Other answer:

Jimmy C:
That is why you NEVER run any machine without a good fully updated active anti-virus, which should stop them getting in. If you rely on just scanning, you could have spyware from one scan to the next and it could pass out ALL your personal information all round the Internet.
Xn|⌡ЖJ¤P:
yeah. that is what your antivirus is for. it detects and quells the bad viruses.
as you've said, just don't return to that site and it won't get you anymore. 🙂
Big Mo:
If it says it blocked it you are okay.
