I've run several scanners, each several times: Ad-Aware 2008, Spybot S&D, Symantec AV, and Windows Life OneCare Saftey Scanner (off of their website). They all were freezing mid-scan, so I've been running them in Safe Mode.
The Windows scanner made the problem better, but there are still things linger on my computer that I can't get cleaned. I just finished another scan with the same scanner and it's finding something called Win32/Alureon.gen!. There are several of these found, each with a different letter after the ! (e.g. Win32/Alureon.gen, Win32/Alureon.gen!J, Win32/Alureon.gen!P, etc). When searching things on Google, again, I came across your website.
I'm at the point where I want to just reformat my computer, but when I bought my computer, they didn't give me a disc with the OS on it, and so I don't know how I'd even do that. I consider myself pretty good with computers, but this has me flummoxed. I want my computer back to normal, and I'd appreciate any help that I can get! Thank you!
