Move the radio or the comp. you should not be emitting that kind of interference from a comp is it an old one. If not then there is some bad shielding some ware ether monitor or system box

They have to meet emission standards but if you have removed anything it may no now be in place. Shielding that is

PS could it be something else you have got attached to the comp

It could be that the radio is receiving a fairly weak signal. Try a stronger station and see if there is still interference. If not you might need to look at a better aerial or better siting of the existing one. The aerials on portable VHF radios are not too good if you're in a weak-signal area. You might need to use an outdoor aerial instead - and accept the necessity for a coax feeder which defeats the 'portability' somewhat.
