Well to make a long story short I went on a website and somehow got about 10 viruses at once. Im running 2 virus scanners right now but do viruses stay active and "spread" to other files? If so can I stop them from infecting other files?

And on a side note: I downloaded a video converter which was a trial. So I uninstalled it and reinstalled it but it still knew that I had it on here before. How can I download it again in trail mode? But most importantly I need the first question answered

All I know is that there were a few trojans and some of the viruses were called infostealer

UPDATE: I guess both my scanners are crap because out of two one picked up 2 trojans, norton didnt pick up shit and there is still some kind of adware on my computer not to mention some viruses, anyone know where to get a free adware/virus remover?

Norton sucks, why people still use it is a mystery to me. Download AVG, it's free, and one of the most reliable. Then download Lavasoft AdAware, and Spybot - Search and Destroy. Scan your computer, and it should get rid of most, if not all of the viruses.
#16
to the guy talking about converting to ipod, get iTunes and you can covert it to aff or whatever the hell iPod format is, i don't know because i don't have one but i've used other peoples on my comp

hope i helped

If your having troubles with trojans search for "trojan hunter". It picked up everything that my antivirus didnt.

That's because Limewire IS a threat.
No wonder you have such a problem with viruses and adware and spyware, because you have Limewire.

Get rid of it. It's just going to make things worse. Trust me.

What are you talking about? limewire is awesome, i once downloaded a file with 1000 viruses attached to it
#30
^Holy shit

But seriously, I'm just going to give a recommendation here....


IF YOU HAVE LIMEWIRE, REMOVE IT OFF YOUR COMPUTER NOW!! COMPLETELY REMOVE IT!!


It's a gateway to viruses and spyware. Download things from a different source, like bittorrent and stuff. Using uTorrent or Bit Lord or Azureus or something.
Limewire just fucks your computer up.

Torrents > File Sharing.

Use TorrentSpy to download stuff because you can get comments on the file and see if they are infected or something.

This guy speaks the truth. I'd personally use NOD32 over Kaspersky, and use Blackspears NOD32 setup guide on the Wilders Security Forums.

I just scanned my computer with AdAware for the first time in ages, i have 6 registry keys viruses, dammit.

I scanned my brother's computer with AdAware for what I think must've been the first time.

He had 83 New Critical Objects: About 15 trojans, a "Possible Web Browser Hijack" and the rest were tracking cookies.

I also did an eTrust Pest Patrol scan and picked up about 200 things. Honestly, what a fucking noob. I'm almost scared to be on the same network as him.

Yeah I used spybot yesterday and that lavasoft thing, the spybot picked up some stuff and the lavasoft picked up 38 objects, but something happened and I dont know if it deleted them. I still have a ton of adware and viruses on my computer. And now that I think about it I dont know what caused me to get a load of viruses/trojans/spyware/adware. I downloaded one NIN song off of limewire and went to a real screwey site at about the same time, it could have been both.
