Foir now try the first two in my list click here download them and install and update.
Then boot into safemode (tapping F8 on startup will get you into safemode) and run the programs

malwarebytes and Superantispyware.

If still no joy,post back.

What antivirus prog do you use "spybot S&D is more conducive to spy/malware....

hi, i downloaded the second one, and now as i turn on my computer it goes straight to scanning my computer, and wont let me cancel. the only way to stopit is control alt delete, but that just leaves me with a blue screen and still no desktop. iv tried starting on safemode but same happens. Any ideas?

it wont let me do anything now, as i said, it goes straight to scan, i cant even get t my desktop????????

use norton antivirus

this antivirus can solve your all pc problem

Not the most acurate statement, seems more hindrance than help sometimes...

Depending on what virus you have, and how many, sometimes scanning your PC is fruitless and will sometimes take many scans from diferent progs to possibly solve your issue
A format and reinstall is likely the best way to go...

sorry prob gonna sound really stupid now!! i havnt got a clue where to start! how do i go about putting norton onto computer if it wont even allow me to desktop????????

I would not advise installing Norton even if you could - there are a number of good free AV programs available. Skidzy has already given you good advice on that.

ms1013 Wouldn't bother with norton that is not going to be the answer to your issue, if you cannot get to your desktop i fear a clean reinstall this way you will be certain to be rid of any viral infection..

Some details about your operating system would be good...

Try doing an online scan with this(using internet explorer)click here Also go to start/run and type msconfig and under start up untick the boxes of anything that shouldn't be running at boot up.Only your antivirus/anti malware and firewall need to run at boot up.
