I have a virus and it wont download java or many things i try to download and it is very slow.


First thing you need to do is get rid of that virus/spyware or whatever it is. If you don't have a virus program there are several out there that allow you to download a trial version temporarily. I personally prefer www.kapersky.com, but there are others. Spybot is also very helpful in getting rid of spyware and that is at www.spybot.com. If you can't get rid of the virus/spyware/malware then the best thing to do is to do a system recovery. If you computer does not have a system recovery partition then as a last resort you will have to reinstall windows from your disk. Make sure you tell it to format your drive. You will need to re-install your programs and load your document files from your backups. You do have a current backup of your data, right? Good luck.

It may not be a virus. It sounds more like a bad case of spyware. You may want to download, install, update, and run something like Malwarebytes AntiMalware. It sounds pretty serious, so it may need the attention of a PC technician to fully remove the infection.

Hope this helps!

There could be several things wrong but with the information provided, I am going to say that you have a virus and/or spyware. Run a complete scan on system with both antivirus and spyware remover. Rid of all spyware. If you have Limewire, delete it and reboot. This should stop the computer from rebooting.

The easiest and lowest  cost thing to do would be to download Avast!. It is a virus protection software, and if you google search that name, you can download a free trial.  After you download it and you start to set it up, it will ask you if you would like to do a boot time scan on your next restart.  Says yes, and when you restart your computer, it will do a virus scan before booting into windows.  This allows it to remove threats that may be in running memory.  It is very slow, but does a very good job at getting rid of viruses and whatnot.

Virus on my computer help!


Hi,

Don't worry, trojan.adclicker is not a serious threat, only some spyware which is not anywhere near as malicious as a virus. There are two things you can do to get rid of it though..

1) Follow these instructions (They are long winded but will work)
http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2002-091214-5754-99&tabid=3

2) Download Spybot S&D. This is a really good bit of software that should get rid of it much more easily for you, and will probably get rid of other similar stuff on your pc. Follow the link below and then install the program, then scan the system, then fix problems.

I would recommend trying option 2 first, it will be less hassle.

Hope this was helpful
