well u said its new, so just use the discs/backup partition and reformat it... not a big deal if u havent done too much with it yet.

if u need to get files off it, go on another computer and burn an ubuntu boot disc, access ur windows files from there, and copy onto thumb drive.

if u need help with that u can pm or something.

well its fairly new, about a month, theres loads of music and porn stored on it



well, it definitely sounds like a virus. just switch all your stuff over to a different comp, wipe it and reformat.
