I recently had a popup stating I had been infected with trojan.gootkit. How do I know and what do I do to get rid of it? Can someone please help?

It may be nothing more than an attempt to sell you removal software for an infection that doesn't exist. Trust only messages that come from a scan you started via your anti-virus software.

Scan your computer with your anti-virus and get back to us with the results. You may have nothing but a rogue "browser-helper" program that is generating these pop-ups. It may also just been generated by the web site you were currently visiting.

Good Luck
The scan reports no virus. I was afraid it just wasn't picked up by the software. Thank you
