alldownloaded AV software needs to be updated to be efetive agaist virus but there is a way around by using BitDefender Online Scanner click here this website scans your computer for free and since its online itis allways upto date with the latest deffinisions to combat virus and the like, this is a recognized distributor of Anti-Virus and is up there with NOD32 and Kasparski. afterwards download a free av to use normaly such as AVG Free 8.0, spybot S&D 1.5 or Avria Free
