My computer has been infected with some particularly persistent virus.

When logging onto the web my anti-virus (AVG 7.0) picks up a number of viruses in particular

vxh8jkdq1.exe (the one after the dq can be any number 1-9)

I also get pop ups saying I need to buy slimsheild and boxes opening saying that slinstaller can't be opened.

I have run the AVG software which picks up the viruses, removes them but they reappear...can anyone suggest how I can remove these and get back to 'normal' computing...I am certainly no computer whizz and so have no idea how to remove these and what damage they can do to my computer and what they might try to access.

Thanks in advance.

Create a directory on your hardrive, to save HijackThis.exe, called c:\hijackthis. This is a mandatory step, for the backup and restore functions, of HijackThis, to be able to work.

Download the latest version, from here.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum. Do not fix anything, yet.
