Virus won't allow me to upload photos
« on: December 04, 2008, 01:04:56 PM »
I use Windows XP and probably got a virus from a Facebook e-mail.  I cannot upload photos and get a message about not having any plugins.  My clock in the lower right corner also is giving me trouble.  Please help.  I'm not technically literate when it comes to computers.
