Hi everyone, Seems I have learnt something new in this world of computer tech stuff. I have been hit with the TotalSecurity virus/trojan/nasty. I have read and reread several posts and thoughts on other sites. Have tried one method but it failed and this bug is still here. I have gone into processes to stop that file at least........can someone please guide me through this? I have several antispywares on my computer. I was able to delete (as administrator) through Spybot which helped solve some little things, yet the I cannot uninstall the programme (totalsecurity) through normal measures. Dont get too high tech with me if someone is good enough to reply!!! PS No, I didnt pay them any money!!........Thanks. Blondie

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Please take the time, to browse the New User Orientation forum, to help familiarize yourself with how the board works.

Also, don't forget to check out the Tutorials.
There's a lot of very useful information, in there.
