Well here is my problem. My antivirus software (avast) detects 2 viruses. The first is called Hrum# and has what looks like a randomly generated number after it everytime it is detected, the antivirus software can delete it but a few seconds later it will just re-apear with a different number, i have tried deleting it myself but again it just re-apears a few seconds after. The second one seems to have named itself printer.exe, this virus really slows down my computer as a few minutes after i boot up my computer a get a yellow triangle that tells me i have a spyware infection. It also gives me popups telling me to go and download WinAntivirus 2007 which doesnt seem to take 'No' for an answer and carries on poping up every few minutes. Also i cant access my Control Panel even in safe mode or delete printer.exe by hand.

Can you guys help?

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
