yea, my computer has gotten a few viruses
and im having trouble getting rid of them

anyone ever heard of spydawn?
coz it has downloaded itself to my computer and im pretty sure it is a virus

also, i have found a couple of files that look nasty but i cant delete them, i know there are programs that exist that allow you to isolate these files and delete them, any recomendations?

thanks

I got that last week. the way I got rid of it was I did a system restore to the week before and it worked perfectly fine. My computer is great again. It was a bitch while I had it though. Lemme guess, you downloaded something called like Video Active X?

EDIT: I'm completely serious I had that exact same virus on Wednesday of last week and I tried about 5 methods offered online and none of them worked until I just system restored it to a couple of days before I got it. Try it

Haha I'm gonna guess that it said a plugin was necessary to view some kind of porn movie and you figured it was an upgrade or something and clicked yes. Correct me if I am wrong.

Thats ok it happens. Just try the system restore to a few days before you got it. I'm not bullshitting you everything returns to normal.

Go to Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore
Then you choose the Restart my computer to an earlier time and just select the time. Good luck and tell me if it works.

EDIT: You can always undo the system restore. Try not to do it too far back because I know I'm afraid of losing music and documents even though it says it saves them. Choose about 3 days before when you got the virus if it was recently.

Dunno but whatever you do don't buy the shit they advertise you to buy. Its stupid and whatever you do look up what your downloading to get rid of it before you get it because it might just be more spyware.

You are lucky my computer wouldn't allow me to delete the files.

Computer games? What are those? Oh, you wouldn't know, its a Windows thing.


Touché.

Although we have Halo, as well as WoW, and a few others. I'm not much of a computer gamer, even when I had a PC.
