Hey guys, I have a really bad Virus problem on my PC at home, I had AVG on my computer, but it wouldn't do anything, so I got a demo version of Norton and the same thing, it kept finding the minor virus's and deleting them but the major Virus that the scans wont find keep letting the smaller virus's back in after they're deleted. I know where to find the virus (i think) in Local Disk, but the link to local disk has disappeared and so has the search button so I can't find the Local Disk. Can anyone help me?

any help would be greatly appreciated, because I have alot of important stuff on here.

1: Always use protection for sex (in your case, good anti-virus before the porn)
2: How can you know you have a "big virus" if the anti-virus can't find it?
3: Get Avast or Nod32, these things can find viruses everywhere

Edit: By the way, if by LocalDisk you mean your C:\ drive, you can hit the windows button and the r key (at the same time) and just type "C:\" in the box then hit enter, it brings you right there.

You might have to reinstall windows. Do you have a system recovery disk?
If you REALLY worry about viruses I sugest using Linux rather than windows. There are virtually NO viruses for linux

Try booting the computer in Safe Mode. Press F8 when the computer is booting up and it will give you the option to start in Safe Mode. In Safe Mode, several (if not all) non-vital functions are disabled, so you can do stuff without worrying about spyware or viruses interfering.

Trial stuff doesn't work, Get avast,Avira or try spy ware removers from download.com you should see what all the free programs they have can do. Plus it could be your registry....clean it out. get ccleaner or registry repair etc.

Ok, thankyou that worked, I found the infected file, it wont let me unistall the program (called VirProtect XP, and Win 32), and it wont let me delete it, its saying something along the lines of "Cannot delete, make sure file isn't write protected" or something, can anyone help me with this? while keeping porn jokes to a minimum haha, I didn't get it from porn I don't think.

Two suggestions:

1. Safe Mode. It will let you delete it.
2. Open the Windows Task Manager and end any processes relating to the file name of the virus, then try deleting it.

EDIT: By the way, +1 to the guy who said CCleaner. I have it and it works great. Between CCleaner and my own efforts, I've been able to manually remove stuff that not even the Verizon Security thing that we pay for on a monthly basis could remove.

Dude.... reboot into safe mode, THEN get rid of the virus. You won't be able do delete it unless you get into safe mode.
