Hello to all you Gurus,
Running Windows XP Home/SP3.
Yesterday I found a Bit Torrent on my computer which I know I have not downloaded. I managed to use Unlocker and after a few attempts I was able to remove it. I also have a text file that keeps appearing on my Desk Top. I use Shift/Delete to remove it, bur after a while it returns - always with a different message. They are daft meaningless little messages like "Terminated" or "HAB FUB".
I was going to run all the anti virus programmes that I have installed. I started with AdAware. After about one hour my computer shut down. I restarted it. A lot of my Desk Top Icons have changed and double clicking on any of the Icons does nothing. I tried going into my folder with all the anti virus .exe files but could not launch them from there either.
This computer is used for video, photography and graphics and is never connected to the internet except for updating anti virus programmes. I do have it net worked to another computer.
Any and all help appreciated as usual.
Thank you for your time,
