I hate to think Swagbucks is causing these problems on my computer

I have text to voice in my computer now over an hour because I have a virus I couldn't do anything with the computer just completely shut me out. I think goodness that I do have the tech support for me to even get the help but I'm. You request me on the leg already if I had to go to the shop with that computer. They already think I'm sick everything I can possibly check for me this evening. But I have McAfee on the computer and it shows that my computer is protected so I don't know how that virus could have got on there. But it definitely said it was from the defender. I think it's Windows Defender and I wanted it off my computer. The lady that was in the computer this morning told me that she would take it off and it wasn't taking off and that's exactly where that virus came from. But every time I get a virus I'm always on swagbucks website.

I think it is a chance we take going to any popular sites. Getting viruses that is. I was told by a tech that I have a trojan on my computer than hides. It looks like a normal file and so anti-virus software doesn't get it when it does a scan. Also, I had a trojan on an old computer that wrapped itself around files and couldn't taken off by McAfee. The McAfee tech advised me to get Norton anti virus because it was the best and it could get rid of it for me. Ugh! What a time that was.

I am tired of it but if I have to buy Norton I sure will budget for it.
