Computer is acting funky. What anti virus, spywear, etc programs works the best? What is happening is I downloaded some movies and when I was done watching them I deleted them. Memory before delete was almost 100% full, after deleteing them I was to 75% full. Now two days later without downloading anything memory is back up to almost 100% full. Please be specific on your answers and why. All answers will be rated. Currenty I am running Norton Internet Securty and Windows Defender. It's a HP laptop, just over a year old, running windows vista.

ave you done a full virus scan with up-to-date anti-virus software?
If you don't have any anti-virus software and you use the Internet, you
REALLY need to get some! My preferred anti-virus package is Norton
Anti-Virus but, if you want a free copy in a hurry, download AVG
Anti-Virus from www.grisoft.com - that's also excellent
Its a fake anti virus program. The best thing is to search google for fake antivirus removal tool. Run this and after that get yourself a good anti virus program with buit in spyware remover to keep this from happening again.
This usually happens when there is an existing anti virus present. Make sure you remove your old anti virus completely. The best way to do this is by going into "Safe Mode" turn computer off. Turn it back on and continually press F8 you will eventually get a black screen with a bunch of options. Go to "Safe Mode" and press enter. Once the computer starts, remove old anti virus using "add Remove programs" in the control panel. Now you should be able to install the new anti virus. Hope this helps.
Hope you have anti-virus and anti-spyware programs If so, boot your computer to "Safe" mode with networking. Update your anti-virus and anti-spyware programs. Then run the programs either one at a time or simultaneously (tip: run both programs twice). If this does not work, then the next best thing to do is to reformat your hard drive and re-install all your programs. Of course you'll need to back up all your pertinent files.
First u reinstall all the spyware software. Install PC doctor and clean all the spyware. This is the best software i think....Or u check with best antivirus. ok. (NOD 32 is very best for anti-virus/anti-spyware). ok. check out.
