Default Has anyone clicked a bad link in an email?

My brother and myself email a lot back and forth and when I received an email with a link I didn't think about it being a SPAM link or whatever you call them so I opened it. I knew right away it was a mistake. Now I'm receiving 200+ SPAM emails a day.......MAKE IT STOP!!!!!!

My computer is also acting weird. When I restart my computer I get a message that I have 1 app running when I don't have any app running. Could there be an app or something attached to my computer that is doing something while running in the back round? I was on the Bass Pro website and I had a message flash on my screen that said
"TRACKING ACTIVE". I do a lot of banking online including moving stocks on Scottrade, am I in danger of someone getting my passwords? WTF is going on and how do I stop it???

Yeah I know.....today's episode of "WHAT DID RUSS DO TODAY!"
