Okay so recenlty I realized that my computer had a virus because this whole AntiVirus Pro 2008(that somehow downloaded to my cpu) just didn't make sense. My desktop had a big red background and constant pop ups saying that I need to buy this Antivirus Pro mess kept popping up. Certain functions became nonusable like Task Manager. When I click Start, my regular options aren't available. Okay, so I researched this and found out what it is. Then I tried numerable things to get rid of it.
I found a AntiVirus 2008 Pro removal instructions to go to Program Files and delete the folder, but I have to be in Safe Mode. Now the problem was that the "User" that I use when I get on my computer was affected and all of the normal functions were unavailable, so I logged in to my Guest user(which still received false popups, so I assumed that the virus was also on this User) in Safe Mode and all of the functions were available unlike my Primary User/Administrator. So I went into Program Files and deleted the AntiVirus 2008 Pro folder. So I restarted my computer and logged back into my Primary User account and the background doesn't have the red, but its still not right. I don't get the pop ups anymore though. Still the functions aren't all available like before. I sense that i didn't completely delete the Virus. Then I found out about a SuperAnti Spyware and downloaded that and that got rid of a bunch of things that it said was on the computer...still my problem remains.
I need to bring my computer back to having all of its original functions...Control Panel, "Run"(on the start menu)...etc.
Someone please help. Im desperate.
