Hi a friend of mine had just got a virus on the internet which gives them the 2 min countdown and then restarts the pc. I have dealt with this before but i forgot the shortcut in which you can get more time by typing in the start run box can someone remind me and also give me a link to the site where i can fix the problem.

Just wanted to ask if there is a software you can buy and install on to the pc so it wont get the virus again.

This MUST be kept up to date.
