Okay, I am not completely sure if it's a virus, but it all started when I was using internet explorer, because I use that to upload videos to youtube so I don't have to sign out of my Google account on Chrome and into another account every time. So while it was uploading, I visited some other sites, I went to Alienware.com or something, you know for those very expensive Dell gaming computers, then I don't know, pop ups started happening, and then well as I was typing that on the desktop that had a virus it crashed and said that I needed to install drop out again. So I moved my phone and recklessly from saved everything that I was typing before. I don't know what happened. So I don't know what to do. Should I install some security setting to wipe out viruses. I've never had a virus on my computer, because I've never went to websites or anything or even downloaded anything that was potentially malicious. So what can I possibly do to make my computer work again. What I am always done in the past was I completely deleted the operating system and went to Lenox. But this is Windows 8 and I don't want to do that. Because I like playing Skyrim and stuff on my computer.
