I somehow got very bad viruses on my precious laptop and now it’s complete hell.  Windows just pop up all over the place, new programs show up out of nowhere and when I try to unistall said programs they just return back later.  Anyone know how I can fix this?  Maybe an adware program?

    That really sucks. 😕

    You should try a spyware removal program. Some recommendations: Lavasoft AdAware, Spyware Blaster, Spybot – Search & Destroy.

    Also install an anti-virus program. Norton is good.

    If after trying the spyware removal and anti-virus scanning you still get stuff, then format your computer. Immediately after formatting, if you’re on Windows, update your Windows until it says no more updates to be found.

    Then install 1) anti-virus, 2) spyware removal programs.

    Hope this helps!

    I installed WinAntiSpyware and I already had Norton though now it wants me to install WinAntiVirus 😆 I’ll try formatting my computer now…thanks!

    Eek. Maybe you should consider an industrial strength firewall. Heh heh! No one can get through to your PC without your having approved the connection first. It’s tedious and may cause some websites not to work, but well, it beats having to format when something goes wrong. Good luck!
