Get norton anti virus. (thoroughly scans your system for viruses and quarentines them-also has firewall and email scanning capabilities) Norton also has a complete line up of virus protection software
get XoftSpySE (gets rid of Spyware, adware, malware, spybots, etc)

after you download or get the above products i would install them immediately, after install restart your computer, ensure that you are disconnected from the internet if at all possible and start each of the above programs before you do anything else. preferably start norton first, and let it do a full system scan. once its finished, run the XoftSpySE and when they are both finished do what they recommend to get rid of the viruses. after that restart your computer, plug back up to the internet and you should be golden.

How to delete a software attacked by virous? Because I uninstall the software, and install anew one,the virous still stick to it.

Hi, Viruses attacks in different ways. If you knew that you already uninstalled the program that has the Virus but it is still there. The virus is still in the computer in a different location. What is does is it replicates the virus that you are removing. The best way that you can do is to save all the important files that you have on the computer to another device like an external hard drive (especially the file you know that is not infected) then If you have a registered antivirus the better. ran a full system scan. If that doesn't detect anything then reformat the computer to remove the virus. Cheers!!

Acer aspire one under virus attack

Your best bet is to do the following;
1 download either SuperAntiSpyware or MalWareBytes update via the internet and scan the disk (these are excellent and both Free)

2 Remove any Malwere they recommend

3 If the message still comes up download and run Trojan Remover - this will remove it.

Then make sure you are protected in future by installing an anti-virus system like (if you dont want to pay) Avira or Avast or if you do Kaspersky or Bitdefender

Removing virus

Try the free version of Malwarebytes
If you have issues installing it, try renaming the file and then renaming the main .exe after it's installed. Some viruses and trojans can recognize the file name and prevent it from installing/running. Also try safe mode to install and run a full scan.

Virus attack

A trojan Virus can be very nasty. I suggest going to and download the free home version virus scan. Disable and remove all other virus scans you have going to include the system resource hog Nortons or McAfee. Upon completeion of installation, it will ask you to do a boot time virus scan, click yes. Most Trojan viruses attack the system before they get completely started, therfor, makes them harder to remove.If you still need help after this, PLEASE feel free to conatct me and I will assist you further.
