I am about as computer literate as a dead hamster, but somehow, some way, I was able to infect my computer this evening with something called Spyware Protect 2009.

Having no computer knowledge at all, knowing I got a computer virus must be the same feeling as skydiving, pulling the rip cord, and nothing happens.

Now, I have Norton 360...Norton 360 is about as useful as pulling the ripcord on your auxiliary parachute, and nothing happens.

After searching on my friend's computer via Google, I came across this post from this website:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

I'm not sure if this suggestion worked though. I'm pretty sure it hasn't.

That's how I found this site!!!
