you could go out and get an antivirus. or could format your computer either way i would suggest buying an antivirus starting your computer in safe mode and install it run a scan and that should solve it. i would suggest nod or mcafee for antivirus ones i wouldnt norton avg.

Go to this page.

Click "Continue to Symantec Security Check."

A new window will pop up, giving you the option of a Security Scan and Virus Detection. Run both.

I would recommend you purchase Webroot Spysweeper, and North Systemworks and Norton Firewall. That is what we use. To deal with the viruses, you're probably looking at a wipe and reload, or using Microsoft Windows System Restore, to return your HDD (hard disk drive) to the state that it was in before the infection.

One more thing:

Keep nana off the computer. :laugh:

I did try to restore the computer but it didn't give me a date to restore it on before the infection started. And i cleaned my computer but it didn't get rid of it. I figured i need to get an anti virus software but Its not me that needs to buy it, its nana and she thinks that its not going to do anything.... :laugh: So yea... i am trying to find a alternative. I did scan my computer and i have many viruses, but nothing i have put on as a detector... well it justs detects it... doesn't get rid of it...

Well, you're looking at writing the drive to zeros, and then reloading all relevant software in all probability. I would have that done by a computer tech at a computer supply store rather than going through phone tech support.

And yes, an investment in anti-virus software is very worthwhile, as is an investment in anti-spyware software. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Anti-virus software is like a cup in hockey. A waste of money until you need it. Then it's a fine investment.

I use Avast! and it works great, it's free too. I've never had any issues whatsoever.
