  1. Fake virus found message when playing microsoft sudoku. How can it be removed


    When playing Microsoft sudoku a message comes up saying your computer has been infected by 3 viruses, two malware and one spyware and it suggests that you follow the links to prevent damage to the computer. This only occurs on sudoku and with it uninstalled as yet there has been no reoccurance. This appears to be a scam to sell some form of virus removal tool.
