Default Virus problems/ Scanner Questions

Alright, so I use webroot ANtiVirus, and just scanned my computer a few days ago and quarantined everything. All was fine till I got home today, and it was frozen. I go the blue screen, ran the windows repair, and my computer is now extremely sluggish.

So, my question is, does anybody have any advice.

Also, what are all your opinions on Webroot AntiVirus with Spysweeper.

I need an answer quickly, cause Im sick and tired of all this crap

One more question, is there a program I can find out there that will specfically tell me which folders have been infected. Cause Im wondering if its not just a cookie or...9... but it might be some folder or file on my computer!

Cheers, Dave

After doing the Windows repair, did you reinstall all the drivers for your motherboard, video card, etc?

I use AVG Free. When i run into a problem that can't handle, I run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

When a PC gets to that stage I tend to wipe and reinstall. It generally takes a lot less time and gives me a quicker system than if I spent days trawling through to find the exact cause of the problem...
