i have over 100 viruses on my computer, i suspect they are from AIM, i have run many different anti-virus programs and they cannot cure my computer unless i pay like $30. i do not have the money to do this (i am a college student) is there any way i can get rid of these things manually?

i cannot even ctrl + alt + delete anymore =(

any help would be greatly appreciated.

thank you!

Before posting your Hijack This log please download, install, update and run the following two applications:

*AdAware SE (free): http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

*Spybot S&D (free): http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

Set them to fix whatever they find.

Then go to the following link and follow the instructions there explicitly.
How to submit a Hijack This log

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/How...s_Log-t956.html

Read the pinned post in the HijackThis forum, here
Carefully read and follow all directions explicitly.

Following instructions run the HJT log as instructed, and post it in the appropriate HJT forum, at this link.

Do not attempt to fix anything by yourself yet.

A member of the HJT Team will analyze the log, make recommendations and offer assistance.

Please be patient. It may take a period of time to get a response because the members of the HJT Team are kept very busy.
Pleasebe patient as this team is manned by volunteers. They will help you as soon as possible.

NOTE
Once you have posted your HJT log, please DO NOT make any additional posts in the HJT forum until you get a response from a member of the HJT expert team.

The first criteria they have when looking for logs that need replies are posts showing 0 replies. If you make an additional post, it will show as having 1 reply.
A team member, looking to see if a reply has been made might well assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and might not open the thread to respond.

So, make your post and wait for a response from a team member.

After our HJT experts help you fix your virus and other malware infections please come back here and post a request to have us help you set up your antivirus program (we have a few free ones we will suggest) as well as additional freeware that will keep your computer protected from spyware, trojans, phone homes and other deleterious and malevolent attempts at vandalism.
