Don't think you've got anything to worry about, download Malwarebytes and run a scan. https://www.malwarebytes.org/ Orange button for free version.

Which antivirus do you use, seems to affect Avast users the most.

hi thanks wayne, (would be same as other poster, doctors website, but Im not patient ;-) . as soon as it happened I did virus scan, run nod32 eset, scanned well, no quarantines or anything else, computer up to date but got paranoid so changed email password and bank then continued to do alot more things. is it necessary? (the other things. flybuys etc etc) Im not computer techno so was quite concerned when it all came up,thanx

I think your safe, just carry on as usual.

"Hackers" can't suddenly access your private data because you've gone to a dodgy website. The only way that would happen is if you've installed some dodgy software.

In other words, don't worry about it.

thanx . should i continue to change every password on everything? do you think. also is there anyway i would know if been hacked. and someone mentioned in another thread it could just be kids that put it up? could this be a possibility. appreciate your help as this has freaked me somewhat thanx. oh and why would you think i would be safe, due to virus protection?/early scan? just trying to get to understand thanx
