Question about Computers & Internet
My laptop has been infected with a nasty virus that sits in the bottom left menu bar ( a red button with a white cross ) apparently its quite a wide spread problem, and it keeps popping into the screen saying windows has detected a virus and to download its anti spyware to fix the problem which of course will only make it worse. I just can't seem to find a way to clear it ! I would be grateful for any suggestions. The source seems to be braviax.exe.
Thank you for viewing my problem. I went back to Staples and they solved the problem. The icons on the desktop had been set to large. When they decreased the size of the icons the program also reduced in size. All controls became visible and everything was working fine.

Try this method as virus removals are tricky if you are a novice.
Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.
Download SDFix and save it to your desktop.(GOGGLE IT)
Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(this is the drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix). DO NOT use it just yet.
Reboot your computer in SAFE MODE" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup [but before the Windows icon appears] press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".
Open the SDFix folder and double click RunThis.cmd to start the script.
