You just need to run a full scan on your computer and use a good Anti virus like Avast and also use a anti malware software like Malwarebytes, just google them for the download link and after you install it run a full scan on your computer and that should clean the computer...

Hope that helps...........

How to download torrents or files SAFLEY


Many torrents or files downloaded from Lime wire, Bit torrent, and other torrent programs have viruses on them. There is a way to combat this so that these viruses cannot harm your computer. All you need is a flash drive or external hard drive. When you decide to download a file or torrent download on to the drive rather than your pc. Once it has been downloaded use a anti-virus program to scan the file. If the file is corrupt with a virus you can safely delete it. Should you open the file without scanning it and it does contain a virus don't worry there is still hope. Since the file is saved on a external drive or flash drive just reformat the drive and your computer will still be safe.

Hi,

I suggest you check that your anti-virus is up-to-date and working. If you don't have an anti-virus, I suggest you get one, preferably the commercial versions as contrasted to the free internet versions.

When this is done, give your computer a full system scan for viruses. Let me know afterwards.


Regards.

There is somethig seriously wrong with my PC. It was attacked by some computer viruses


Hi,

You can try to run a full virus scan in Safe Mode. To access it, you will either press F8, or Del (depends on what key was designed on your computer to access the Advanced Boot Options), after getting the Advanced Boot Options, select Safe Mode an press Enter key.

If your antivirus software cannot detect any virus, it was either not updated or was disabled by the virus. You need to contact your antivirus company to get help with manual virus deletion.

However, if you don't have any antivirus installed I suggest to just wipe everything off from the harddrive and start from factory settings.

Hope this helps.

We have lost many programs and tried to delete some that was not needed. we have lime wire lost on the computer we half way find it then it says it is still running and has to be closed don't know whats...


Try ctrl+alt+del look under the applications tab and see if it is running. If so end task. Try to uninstall pgm and reinstall.
You could also try a registry cleaner to fix your problems. There is a goo free one called Ccleaner. Use cautiously, you can really mess up the computer registry and cause the computer to crash!!
You may also have a virus.. Run virus and spyware scan..
Make sure you uninstall programs, dont just delete them.

Do have virus


You'll need to grab an anti-virus, a good free one is AVG, but this only works if you are actually able to do anything in safe-mode. If not, that means you will have to scan from either a Linux Live CD (which, is free, but requires some Linux knowledge, which if you are like 96% of computers users, you lack, so this is not recommended, as you may accidentally break more than the virus has; I have a lot of experience in this and I've even been known to break things from time to time using this method) or manually replace the files, which unless we know what virus is, cannot be done. If you don't the ability to use an anti-virus in safe mode, you may be better off trying to get a computer repairman to fix it for you. Sorry.
