I recently downloaded a program called SystClean accidently on my computer. Firstly, I wish it could protect me from virus attack, but after I use it to scan my computer, it gives me a warning that there are thousands of errors on my computer. I was so scared to see those stuff and don’t know what to do as I don’t have too much appropriate computer knowledge. If I want to use this program to fix the problems, I have to pay. I was about to give my money out, but when I go online and do some research, someone on the Internet said that this SystClean is a virus. So now I think I must get a big trouble in my computer. How can I handle this? Please help.
