Hey Sir, I just got a virus I guessed. About 30 minutes ago, I surfed on the Internet to watch a video and suddenly a flash picture blinking in front of the video to block me to continue, and this flash picture asked me to update Adobe Flash Player to continue this operation, so I had to click to update without second thought. Then after a while, when I opened a tab, I was quickly redirected to www. Javdownsoft.net. I thought the update problems just now had not been solved and this time it automatically asked me to the website to download some new software. Now I know I did something wrong, because everything is not normal online and whatever I want to search or wherever I want to go, I always get on Javdownsoft.net webpage. I thought I brought some kind of malware, and what can I do now?
