Donald asks…

security toolbar 7.1 spyware?

There are a lot of solutions and suggestion to remove this malware, trojan virus or whatever you may call it. All i want to ask is what’s the effect of this unfortunate circumstance that caught my laptop a day ago. Is it a high risk virus? Or just a silly pop-up that distracts somebody’s eyes? I hope it doesn’t erase files or something. thanks
