"virus found" fake alert..what is this?

"virus found" fake alert..what is this? I got an alert that I received a virus. After conducting a virus scan with AVG it reported an infection...(virus foundfake alert. Moved to virus vault). It was removed or healed...What does this mean and is my personal information on my computer safe or could it be in danger? How can I find out if anyone was able to get any of my personal information? I am new to the "computer world" and I have so much to learn! Thank you for your help....

Well you don't Have to worry. This is what a Virus Prog does. Also Download Malwarebytes and check for Malware as well http://www.malwarebytes.org/

I down loaded agv but it brought a mate with it a thing called system security which always pops up, wanting me to buy the blood thing any on no how to get rid of it.
