My wife clicked on a facebook link she thought a friend had sent her. Unfortunatly it appears to be a virus and now my computer is constantly showing pop ups saying its infected with various trojans and spywear programmes. I have tried various spywear removal tools but to no avail : including spybot, superanti spywear, ADV. Do i need to pay for a programme to get rid of this or does anybody know of a free one that will do the job?

Would be very greatful for any help
