I am running Windows 7.
I have Symantec Antivirus installed, and full system scans have quarantined a couple things so far.
Yesterday, it was "JohnTheRipper" and today it just quarantined "Packed.Generic.247"
Recently, there is a new program that opens on startup called Personal Antivirus
I did not install the software, and I constantly get popups in the lower right-hand corner of my screen.
The pop-ups always say something like "W32.Ackantta.B@mm - Worm Found" with options "Block" or "Ignore".
The exact virus or worm name is always different.
Also, this program does not appear in the Installed Programs list.
I tried installing DDS and RootRepeal as recommended, but I guess my OS is not compatible.
I thank everyone very much for their time.
I don't know what to do next.
If you can offer any advice , It would be greatly appreciated.
