Attention – Read Carefully!

DON’T click on the link in this email.  According to my antivirus software the page it takes you to contains a Trojan.  Just delete the email.

If you accidentally access the page and think the trojan might have infected your computer, download and scan your computer with Malwarebytes.

There are two versions of malwarebytes.  
A paid for one : This version provides realtime protection.  It will remove even the most pernicious malware and actively protect your computer in the future.  This is an excellent piece of software for use on a family computer – or any computer whose user(s) may be less than 100% vigilant or confident about which links they are clicking on!
A free one: The free version is not pro-active and doesn’t provide real time protection.  You will have to tell it to update and scan your computer.
