  Hetti 13:19 12 Jun 2008

My hubby clicked on advert for betting system, and everything froze, there was a Virus warning flashing near the clock in task bar,and when I rebooted PC there were three files? downloaded onto desktop, I ran security software Spybot reported 9 errors it siad it got rid of them, but one of the icons is still on desktop, it is called PRIVACY PROTECTOR and there is no uninstall program for it, will it be safe to use internet, and how can I get rid of this icon I did not think it would be safe to just dump it in recycle bin.
