If you haven't gave them access to your computer then it's OK.if you can find the person who send you this message in the facebook report him as a spammer also if he/she is in your friends list unfriend him/her.There are lots of such scam now a days going on so avoid replying to such scammers also do not open any of the files they send.

To make sure your PC is clean and secure i suggest you get malwarebytes antimalware from this link http://www.malwarebytes.org/ download and install it then update it and run a full system scan. This won’t work as a real time malware protector unless you purchase it so if you are planning to use its free version. You need to update it and run the scan once or twice in a month to make sure the system is clean.
I hope that answers your question if not please do let me know.

I installed it, but I have had repeated message that it is not registered. I re-entered the serial number and received a message that I can't register the product twice. The second message suggested that I uninstall it, then re-install it. That seemed to work, but, today, I received another message telling me that my product was not registered and gave the option of either registering it now, or later. I tried the register now option but received no response, nor did the message disappear. I tried the register later button, and I can use it. I have registered the product so the fault is not at my end. … read more
