    Virus on my Computer

    I just got a virus and I thought I had a full anti-virus software but it only searches and will not remove. Went out to buy McAfee and now my computer will not run any .exe files.

    PLEASE HELP!

    1.) Download Avast! or AVG
    2.) Boot up in Safe Mode
    3.) Install and run Avast! or AVG
    4.) Lay off the German Marching Band porn

    Good luck!

    You're screwed. Throw it away and buy a new computer.

    But to be serious for a moment - as soon as I got rid of crap like Limewire and other share programs I never have had a virus since and I'm a very heavy computer user.

    Re: Virus on my Computer

    Can you tell me more? What happens when you try and run exe's?


    Also, next time you have a computer, go out and buy GoBack (GoBack - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). My parents just had a similar problem as you with their computer, except they had GoBack installed. I directed them how to revert their hard drive back 2 hours, and without help from a virus scan.....their computer is back to normal.
