I couldn’t get the virus scans to work on any of the free ones because the virus kept stopping me, so out of desperation, I found a site to help me just saying ‘i have a computer virus’ and I found and there was a forum where someone had asked about it, and underneath the person that answered, he had put some links to click on, and he also said make sure you do it a couple of times because the virus will try and trick you by saying it won’t work, so I did it, and it went in about five seconds! Hi, thanks again, I know it sounds stupid but I know I need to get it back to ‘factory settings’ which I have done before a few months ago, the trouble is, It won’t let me do it, unless I have just forgotten what to do, any ideas?

I had this virus, it was horrid, I had to reinstall windows because it kept burrowing, luckily after I reinstalled a fresh copy my dad gave me norton 360. Boot into safe mode, install malware bytes and run that and remove anything it finds. Even if you just want to learn more about what programs do what to protect your system, it’s definitely worth a look.
I also update new products all of the time so there’s always something new to discover. Is there a safe free website i can use to remove trojan, worm virus from my computer?

Usually Adware comes along as a hitch hiker whenever you download a program or any software.

This type of malware program steals passwords.
It is a program that sneaks in there when you aren’t paying attention to the install screens on a download. Usually virus protectors are only looking at the main program you want to download.. just to make sure that one is safe and rarely looks deeper into the program for a hijacker.
