    Not sure if this is the right place for this but it is the only place that seemed right. This morning I was on line when a window popped up on the screen. It looked like a Windows anti-spyware update. It is called Think Point. Please do not allow this to run or download. It is a virus. It was the first one I have ever downloaded a virus mainly because it looked like a legit Windows update. I was only able to get it off DH's computer by using mine. If it downloads it will block your connection to the internet until you pay for this totally useless program. I could not find a way to delete it without getting on my computer and downloading a fix on to a thumb drive. Thank goodness it wasn't hard to get off just time consuming. Just wanted to share the info so that no one else has to deal with the aggrivation.
