Computer Problems Hi, I am having problems with my computer. I have viruses and spyware type stuff on it. I have AVG antivirus but it isnt finding them because they have to do with my internet usage. My computer is running really slow and won't let me do anything on the internet, it keeps blocking every site that i try to visit and such. I cant download anything to get rid of it of course because my i am unable to visit any websites. Does anyone have any suggestions of what I could do to get rid of them, free if possible but if there is any software i could purchase at best buy that would be great also, i'll do anything to get my computer back to normal, Please Help! Thanks

The following procedure would require a little patience

  3. Run AVG and scan your computer for viruses.
    1. Take note of the viruses found in your computer.
    2. Sometimes viruses would modify your system files and needs to be restored.
    3. To do this you need to check the internet for the details of the virus for better understanding.
    4. Follow recommended removal / repair procedure for the type of virus that infected your unit
  4. There are several antispyware (free) available that can be downloaded. Try this

  1. Download and install anti spyware / malware.
  2. Install spyware / malware and don’t forget to update before scanning your computer.
  3. Scan your computer for any spyware / malware software.
  4. Follow recommended removal / repair procedure after scanning your computer.

If problem still persist run your recovery disk or reinstall your operating system but then again there several things to consider before doing this procedure (programs, availability of installers). But before doing so, make sure that you have backed up your important files.

Sorry guys/gals no can help you there. There is a multitude of free virus and spy ware removal software located online but it's free for a reason. Even if you get the good programs, no one program removes everything. Also if you have gotten to that point my suggestion is bringing it over to the Geek Squad. They have VERY powerful Mal ware removal tools which can take care of almost any problem. The only advice I can give is, BY A GOOD ANTI VIRUS FROM THE START , Also..No Limewire, ebar share, kazza, ares, WinMX or any P2P program of any kind, thats how 75% of all viruses and malware I see are contracted.

Virus/spyware/malwares and all sort of those stuff are really a pain in the neck. for it to get removed will really require alot of programs and to say at least 16 hours and yet not guarranteed to be totally free. best option>
do a clean reinstall. after the clean reinstall do a flea power (unplug your computer from the wall socket and press the power button to drain any information in the memory that could still be hiding.)
