Well, I have spyware on my computer. I have no clue how i got it, but i just got it one day when i signed on. I tried to download something and before it finishes it will close. Also, my control panel is missing and i use a shortcut and it wont let me access it. I was wondering if anyone knows of a program where it completely destroys spyware or malware and i do not have to pay. Please, help me!
