I didnt know where else to go, i can't afford GEEK SQUAD being a single mom and all (they charge $200 just to LOOK THRU your freaking computer!!)

So the other day this thing popped up, and it appeared to be form my WINDOWS SECURITY saying i had all these virus' (Trojan this and Trojan that)...and Spyware...so clicked to have them "cleaned" and it came apparent that my TREND MICRO security was expired..so i put my daughter's grandfathers credit card info into a thing that said it would clean it, taht it was MACAFEE and well now the same crap is popping up, and im getting a REAL BAD feeling i put my father inlaw's credit card at risk now!! I ALSO am not sure if i have these files compromised. It says these files are infected (oh and when i tried to open the macafee thing again to clean all these files AGAIN, this "setup" folder but in zip format kept popping up in my downloads folder..one after another. i soon realized something was wrong and deleted all of them. I DONT know what to do, im a single mom who uses her laptop as her life line to the outside...i think i got these virus' from that POGO.free gaming site!!! I didnt have these problems till i have started playing on their site, but really what do i know.

ANYWAYS the things that pop up that are infected are these:

emptyregdb.dat
NOISE.DAT


and a few others...actually a lot of others, those were the 2 names that i was able to copy and paste before my comp shut down. SOMEONE PLEASE..PLEASE tell me what to do, i can't afford another computer...and i can't loose this one. I use this to shop and GOD HELP ME if someone gets my credit card info im screwed. PLEASE EMAIL ME IF YOU CAN HELP [email protected]

Thanks so very much
