Can't get Virus from viewing or searching web site

You can't get a virus from viewing a web page, only if you download a file that is infected and store it on your hard drive.

Have you run the virus check on all your files? If your software is up to date, it should find any viruses that may be on your hard drive and give you directions for cleaning it up.

If you were only searching the LDS web site, there isn't any way you could have pick up a virus from it.
