Default Virus detected on my computer?

I didn't know until now that i have a message box where things come from people in IMFDB forum.

When i checked it, it was full of messages that saying i have some sort of viruses that sends another viruses to users in IMFDB, and they asked me to do some kind of security test. Otherwise, they told me that i will be banned from this site because of it.

I know. I know.

It's all about spammers. I just looked at their status, and all of them have been banned a while ago.


What's wrong with these spammers anyway?

I've tried Avast before and it sucks. As far as free virus protection goes, AVG is the best, most comprehensive you can get and only gets better with the paid versions.
