I think i have spyware and virus on my laptop. I have anti virus AVG 8.0 (free), but has failed to detect this.
Spyware virus is preventing me from loading Mozilla Firefox, AVG is showing lots of pop ups (threats found,threats detected etc).
If i install purchase and install another Anti-Virus, will this cure the problem( rid of spyware and virusus)?
Thanks in advance

Simply detecting them is not a problem because there are a lot of free spyware removal programs available online where you can simply download them anytime you want. However, you cannot solve the problem if you are only able to detect them; you should also need to be able to completely eliminate them in your computer.

My computer is enfected the virus,how to delete this virus


first you need to know the name of the file that is on your that your anti-virus app tells you the name. then if your anti virus app cannot remove the file you can try to enter your computer in safe mode do a file search for the name of the file on your computer then delete it and flush your recycle bin.
however, if you do not have an anti virus then what makes you think that you have a virus on your computer? you may have spyware on your computer instead and anti virus apps can see the bug but cannot remove them! so this is why you need both an anti virus app and an anit spyware app to keep your computer clean.
if you have internet access there are 2 free anti virus and anti spyware apps that you download all you have to do is register them online with a valid e-mail account and get them for free! AVG is a good anti virus and Spybot search and destroy is a good anit spyware and they are both free.

My laptop has a virus,how can i remove this?


If you don't know what virus you have, how do you know you have one.

Anti-virus software removes a virus, unless you tell me what virus you have
I can't explain how to remove it manually.

Download two things, they are free,

Avira free anti-virus, this is the second best anti-virus software on the planet, and I am not saying this because a friend told me, this is based on actual testing.

Next, download Malwarebytes, they also have a free version.

Below I will post the links for both, these will take care of anything you have. Unless you only think you have a virus, and it just a windows problem.

It says

Avira AntiVir Personal - Free Antivirus
http://www.avira.com/en/download/index.php


http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

Look down the page, and you will see the download button.

I you have a virus, this will take care of it, and if you need more help just
ask.

VIRUS INFECTION , YOUR SYSTEM IS INFECTED


this is what sounds like a trojan or for of spyware, probably disguised as a screen saver. If you have no anti virus installed download this programme for free http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/lng/us/tpl/v5#avg-anti-virus-free If you have no anti spyware programme download this for free. http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-SE-Personal-Edition/3000-8022_4-10045910.html?part=dl-ad-aware&subj=dl&tag=top5 on the laptop press Ctrl, Alt & delete or right click on task bar to get to the task manager and on the processes tab look for the scrensaver.exe or similair that is running, click on it and press end process. this should allow you to work with windows Install the programmes, then go to system restore tab in my computer>right click>properties>system restore tab and click 'turn off system restore'(this will stop any virus or spyware backups reinstalling). Run both the programmes and remove any spyware or virus. If it still appears you may have to uninstall it safe mode, which is press F8 key on start up and select 'start windows in safe mode' and run the antivirus and spyware programmes again.
