1) Try some virus software.
or
2) Start - accessories - system tools - system restore
restore to the day you got the virus, before you had it...
or
3) Wipe the PC with a reformat but you loose everything.


And I know someone will say it so I figure I may as well.

Quit looking at porn!!

v Norton sux...only their highest priced product works, others like NOD32 (something I use) work great and keep the PC running fast. Theres also AVG for free which works ok.

Go to Run and type MRT.exe
its a program that microsoft hides that deletes all virus..
Or get ur self AVG 8.0 and some Spybot search and destroy.
If none of that works time to system restore..
Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.
Last and final. Restore Windows. =[

Get HijackThis. Run it. Google every file found, delete the suspicious ones.
Download Process Guard. Deny all non-system files the ability to startup.
Download Unlocker. Lets you delete the virus even if it's in use, once you find it.
Download Kaspersky. Best Anti-Virus in terms of catching most viruses, and that's fact not opinion. Has 30 day free trial.

Yea it really sucks having a program that keeps my computer clean and virus free. They bit the big one on their very succesful, working product. Boy them people who made Norton must be idiots. The free virus scan/pop up blocker/firewall from freeware sites works MUCH better I am sure.

Hey, I'm no bandwagon jumper. I used Norton for years, until I realised that it was really annoying. I use Kaspersky now.

The only downside to Norton I have ever found are that it is constantly updating(which is a good thing but can get annoying) and that it uses up a fair bit of resources. Most computers now-a-day can handle running it though. I have a 1.8 dual core processor with 2 gigs of ram, not the fastest by any means but Norton doesn't slow down my computer at all.

Does the trick for me, plus its only a inexpensive hp notebook. I only look at po... research material anyways, no need for a blindingly fast computer.

My brother got that once, all we had to do was uninstall msn and delete the containing folder of the virus.
