Default Re: o.O I have a big problem...

Try these online scans (if you can get into your browser the normal way. If not click start - run - IEXPLORE.EXE/Firefox.exe/Opera.exe, depending on your browser):

housecall.trendmicro.com
www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html
www.kaspersky.com/scanforvirus
www3.ca.com/virusinfo/virusscan.aspx
support.f-secure.com/enu/home/ols.shtml
www.thefreecountry.com/security/antivirus.shtml

Should pick up any malware/virus that you have on your computer.

Other good programs are:

http://www.webroot.com/shoppingcart/...21&vcode=DT02A - Webroot Spy Sweeper

http://www.pctools.com/downloads/sdsetup.exe - PC Tools Spyware Doctor

Note: These will only scan your system, not clean it... Unless you pay for them/find a key. Still, in my experience they are by far the best two anti-malware apps.

As Troy suggested, download Nod32. IMO is the best antivirus and it comes with a 30-day trial. http://www.eset.com/download/index.php

Also, I suggest trying to restore your system to an earlier time using system restore (again, if you can access it, that is).

Hope this helps. Goodluck.

Well from my experiences Panda sucks <_< I've had it before, and frankly, it didnt do anything...

I have used Nod32, spybot search and destroy, Ad-Aware SE, Nortans(Ofcourse, it didnt do anything), Macfee(Or however u spell it..). Ofcourse i never installed 2 antivirus's at the same time cause i no that causes problems, but so far nothign has worked.. So I think format is the only way... By by all my masses of anime and music... Because i am to lazy to put them all on cd's...

Before you do that, try a system restore. Can't hurt to give it a try.

When i got hit by the big spyware/adware/virus's my neice downloaded, it reset all my system restore points, so only ones i got are after it happened.

download kaspersky, bitdefender or NOD32. they should be able to map out what you're having problems with. I recommend Kaspersky though. Some people dont' like it but I've found that if you have a really bad problem it can be great to have.

Personally if i was you i would back up anything you need of ya computer (do a scan of ya backups to make sure they arent infected). And then i would format c: (the best antivirus i know lol). I think this would be easier for you as the chances of you removing all traces are limited.
