ok few hours ago got message come up near my clock in toolbar stating:
"Your computer is infected"
dangerous infection detected on your pc.
the system will now download and install most efficient antimalware program to prevent data loss and your priate information theft.
click here to protect your computer from the biggest malware threats.

when i go on the internet my home page has changed to:
http://www.securityprecaution.net/
which gives details that my private info is being collect by W32.Sinnaka.A@mm and that my country is USA, even though im UK!
website recommends some antispy/malware stuff but i don't trust it enough to download.

any ideas on what i can do?
