I've been having problems with viruses on my comp for awhile now, which was probably due to the fact that this was a hand-me-down and didn't have an a/v or firewall when we got it, and because we keep getting them even now that we're running a firewall (Kerio) and a/v(Avast), my bf thinks there's a backdoor in this somewhere. The problem is, I can't find the fecker. The bf has said that the best way to take care of it is to just wipe the pc, but I don't have a windows disk, and naturally (my luck is fabulous) when he sent me one, it got lost in the mail. *shakes fist at UK postal services*

Any suggestions? :thumbsup:
