I use AVG from Grisoft softwear and it has worked well above all the other brands IMHO.

They have a free edition as well as par versions. They all work exceptionally well. I had a virus and Dell told me I would have to reformat my hard drive to get rid of it, but I used the AVG and it erradicated it with no problems.

Here is the link: AVG Free Advisor - AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition (

They also have Spyware protection: AVG Free Advisor - AVG Anti-Spyware Free Edition (

And another is the Root Kit protection which is also important to run periodically: AVG Free Advisor - AVG Anti-Rootkit Free (

If you want to see any of these first hand, call me I have them loaded on my computers and use them regularly.

Good Luck

Sometimes, the only way is to completely wipe out your hardrive and start all over. I know it is a pain in the butt, but that's the nature of the beast. Good luck.

Do you know the name of the virus ?

Download this free program update it and restart your computer in safe mode and then scan your computer with it. - AntiAdware, AntiSpyware, AntiMalware! (

It is one of the better programs out there.

You may be shocked at all the things it will find and remove.

If this does not fix the problem post back here.
