How to know if I have a trojan on my computer I received a pop up saying my computer is being hacked for my personal, banking and credit card information. It said call the number on the screen and do not disregard this warning. For ten years, the battle raged. Thousands of ancient Greece's best warriors battled their enemies, the Trojans, in a desperate attempt to win back King Meneleus's beautiful wife, Helen.
