WinPC antivirus has made computer unusable

  pomerian 14:18 27 May 2009

Please could someone help my Daughter. As her computer was getting a bit slow she clicked on an advert on Virgin home page to speed it up it installed WinPC antivirus without asking and now keeps covering the screen with virus and other warnings which come up with increasing frequency making the computer unusable. It has also disabled System Restore, the program does not appear in Add&Remove, I have tried Search but it only found the quick load icon. It did appear in the programme list so I deleted it but it only deleted the entry and the programme remains. Does anyone Know how to get rid of it Please.
