My girlfriends computer has viruses on it. I installed spybot and it comes up with a boat load of problems. Some of the problems can't be deleted because it says it is in use. How do I get rid of all the viruses? What kind of virus killer can I download. also when I'm on the internet it won't let me go to hotmail and hundreds of pages pop up???? thanks in advance.

Have you tried avast! Anti-virus ? After you install it, you can run a boot time scan that will search for and remove viruses before the operating system even loads up! I prefer the pro version, as it offers more options and can be found for as little as $5 for a 3 years license from companies that are going out of business!


I have not tried it. I will download tonight. thanks alot

    Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan:Select My Computer
