Default Free registery cleaner help.

I need help my computer recently got a few trojan viruses i have done my best to clean them off but i want to make sure all the adware,spyware and grey ware and viruses are removed i have:

Windows xp sp2

Intel celeron cpu 2.40Ghz

256 mb ram

Intel 82845g/gl/ge/pe/gv graphics controller

I have microsoft anti virus [which catches the viruses] but when i scan using this it always comes up blank.

I have ad aware that i run daily that catches about 8 plus ad wares a day

Tweek now reg cleaner pro [on a trial download]

Every registery cleaner finds 100's of problems but i can't afford to register how can i remove the unwanted files and bugs with out paying for a registration key?

I have limewire and Morpheaus [where 90% of the viruses come from]

Is it a firewall problem?

Get rid of Limewire and Morpheous for a while so that you dont download any more viruses

1.Get AVG anit-Virus(http://www.grisoft.com/doc/10/lng/us...dition&plt=win)
Update it and then run a full system scan

2.Download spybot make sure you update it and then immunize it, then run a full system scan

3.Update youre ad-aware program then rull a full system scan

4.Download Registry Tuneup(http://acelogix.com/download.html)
A.Scan

5.Download Registy Fix(http://www.registryfix.com/download/index.htm)
A.Scan

It's probably that you use morpheous and limewire. I gave up p2p downloading, its dangerous. I just buy my stuff off of itunes. Anywho, your probably effed in the A, you could try some of these programs as follows...

Spybot S&D - http://www.download.com/Spybot-Searc...ml?tag=lst-0-1

CCleaner -
http://www.download.com/CCleaner/300...ml?tag=lst-0-1

Adware SE Personal (although you used this)
http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-SE-...ml?tag=lst-0-1

This is supposdly the best free firewall you can get
I myself bought Etrust's EZ Antivirus

Nod32

Thanks english15x and natej315 i have un-installed morpheaus and am only using limewire for music i stay clear of the video and images for the obvious reasons.Thank you so much.I did go on to c-net and read there "Ten things you should have" advice and found most of there stuff okay it's just since i downloaded morph i have had serious problems.Only had the computer 3 months and i am still baffled by simple security issues.

Thanks again for your help.

i dont know why so many people say limewire gives u viruses cause the fact is it doesnt! the only way u would get virus was if u were trying to download something such as a song but it was clearly not right cause it was only 500kb or somethin, then its obviously not the song and u dont download it, anyways are u using internet explorer? if so then stop now and start using firefox www.getfirefox.com this well help stop a lot of the spyware
