A blue screen pooped up saying my computer is infected with a virus and said hackers could steal my credit card information. I thought it was a scam so I clicked on it again 2 min later and it Saud it looked like threre was suspicious activity on my computer. Can geek squad fix this?

This attack is more commonly known as typo-squatting.

Prodecure for removal – reboot in safe mode with networking. Download and install Malwarebytes Anti-malware; open Malwarebytes and run a scan.

DONT take it to Geek squad. They will overcharge the hell out of you. Use task manager (ctrl+alt+del) to close all your browser processes, then reboot your PC. It's a scam where the scammers buy up misspelled domain names that serve you bogus web pages. Once you reboot, it will be gone…or call the scammers and F with them.

Giggle.com is a baby swimsuit compony.

I know because I typed in https://giggle.com . Note the https part, because it means you have a secure encryption set up when on the webpage.

I meant giigle.com not giggle
