AV64 program ???

  GBL 13:27 30 Aug 2008

My daughters computer keeps displaying a program which I think is AV 64 or something like that, it tells her that the computer is running slow as it may have a virus, it offers to scan and within no time at all it states that there are about 80 problems and asks to run some programs and instal things.

Basically what is this and is this a Virus? we have no idea where it has come from, we have never installed it etc. How do I get rid of it??

Sounds like malware to me, follow smackheadz advice and then post back with result.

Never got the AV64 thing this time around but installed the program smackheadz suggested and found 14 items which have been duely removed, trojans, installer and aware. So hopefully that is now sorted, thanks to all.
