Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
Hi, A program called 'Personal Antivirus' has appeared on my desktop pc and I can't get rid of it. It does not appear on the program list in Add/Remove so I can't uninstall it. It keeps popping up telling me my machine is riddled with all sorts of worms etc. It's driving me crazy!! It says it has found hundreds of threats but AVG 'free' says only 7 threats appear in a DRiverMax zip file which I downloaded when I needed some new drivers. I've dealt with those but this program is plaguing me! Thanks for your time.

To tell you the truth you need to format and reinstall with so many virus, spyware, and ad-ware out there it is safest to back-up your files then format and reinstall.
If you are downloading files that have virus' then you will keep this problem around
