My brother was trying to watch wrestling videos online last wednesday, and since then, we've been having a lot of issues with our computer
he's 10, so I'm guessing he unknowingly downloaded something to our computer.
It started as pop-ups advertising anti-virus software, and now it's turned to constant "warning" messages about viruses on our computer, new desktop icons (advertising mal-ware defenders, system error fixing, and pornography), the disappearence of "All Programs" and other items in my 'Start' menue, and worst of all, I can't manually access my C drive.
I've been running McAffee and AVG Anti-Virus since Thursday, and though I've deleted a lot of adware, viruses, etc., the effects continue
I really need help, because at the moment, I can't access my GuitarPro program or files or my iTunes

It was probably lesbian mud wrestling....
We ain't pushing the boundaries, we're blowing them up.
We ain't trying to expand the scene, we want the scene to erupt.

He was watching pr0nz!

Make him pay by taping his eyelids open and making him watch 12 straight hours of scat pr0n!

On topic, I cant help you I'm afraid

Do the scans the person said above, but run them in safe mode.
Best thing to do really.
All i can say to do really, cause thats all i know

Safe mode scans allow the virus to stay in one place cause it has nothing to attack as nothing is active in safe mode, so the scan can delete the file all at once.
