So. I came home from college and my parents/brother begged me to help them fix their computer. I'm fairly computer savvy, so I attempted to fix it. Couldn't even believe how re-freaking-diculous this bug is.
What it does is plays random video clips (just the audio, which will really freak a girl out at 3 AM), CONSTANT pop-ups of "Spyware Alert!" and "ads" for Anti-Virus Pro, along with "Windows Security alert" (That's the grammar right there, hah), and Antivirus System Pro alert. I attempted to download some anti-virus software off the internet, but getting on is a task in and of itself. I can sometimes get on using Internet Explorer, but Firefox is just one site after another of "This site is infected!" for even sites like google.com or something like that. I literally have no idea what to do. I've tried other websites, but nothing has worked.
I'm not sure I can take this much longer (or my mother, God bless her, hovering over my shoulder, telling me the computer is doomed, doomed, doomed). ANY help would be appreciated. Thank you all so very much!
