Question about Computers & Internet
Yoy have a VIRUS I am sorry to say
It is a pretty common one and unless you are pretty competatnt at this type of work it does need to go to a pro.
HOWEVER there may be help at hand.
Go there and get a copy of the CD and burn it on a known CLEAN computer.
Set your bad computer to boot from CD and boot from that CD
Use each of the antivirus/abtispyware packages in tunr until you are done
ONLY USE THE CD until you are finished.
Once you are finished set your computer to boot as normal from the hard drive and you should be good to go.
Once you are booting normaslly use add/remove software to un-install any old antivirus software you had and install new. I do NOT repeat NOT reccomend NORTON or MCAFEE
Better are ESET, AVG FREE, NOD, KASPERSKY.
Once you have decent antivirus installed make a back up of your important data for future reference.
Thats should be about all you need to do.
In addition to any anti virus may I also reccomend you get a copy of MBAM either the free or paid version as a suplement to any antivirus.
This will provide extra coverage in areas most anti virus does not cover.
