There are a couple ways. Try downloading a free virus protection software program like AVG or avast!. They only provide virus protection, but they also clean up your PC. If your computer is too far gone, you may need to take it into a tech store and get your Hard Drive wiped clean.

What are the viruses

A computer virus is a software program, script, or macro designed to infect, destroy, modify, or cause other problems with your computer or software programs. The user may protect him by using an anti-virus protection program. The anti-virus protection program designed to detect, protect, and clean any computer viruses. This is the most basic way to define a computer virus. There are tens of thousands of viruses out there with many more created on a daily basis. The protection program needs to updating on a constant basis. The computer needs updated with its running system, email and files in order to keep a completely safe PC. The normal use of any computer still puts the system at risk of being compromised by hackers unless you provide an anti-virus program for your protection along with a personal firewall.

Was sent a mesage had a virus in now computer wont work keeps saying no conection

Where you using any virus protection software? If not, you probably caught rogue virus software. This stuff first infects the PC and then demands payment to release and protect it. It's a scam virus. If you were using a virus protection program contact the software vendor for further help.

Antivirus is basically a protection against viruses....

Basically it protects your pc from worms, trojans and viruses...

A computer worm is a self-replicating computer program.It uses a network to send copies of itself to other nodes (computerterminals on the network) and it may do so without any userintervention.

A Trojan horse, also known as a trojan, is a piece of malware which appears to perform a certain action but in fact performs many different forms of codes.

A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer without permission or knowledge of the user.

Can't find virus protection program

The ones that come free with purchase are generally a trial offer and you will have to pay for future protection.

AVAST FREE is the best Anti-Virus I've seen, once you register by e-mail they send you an activation code and it is done

Besides, I'm a firm believer of free.
