I have recently gotten a really bad virus(malware) and I use AVIRA and it keep detecting them and does an auto scan more each virus detected which slows my computer down. I have been trying to fix the problem for a few days but I am not sure but it seems a little more difficult than the pinned virus removal topics. Recently I thought AVIRA may been able to remove them, but my computer restarted after the scan to remove the files, and upon restart it started a rescan and has been sitting a 15.4% for 5 hours and is now not responding

My HP netbook system is Windows XP Serv Pack 3 and I use AVIRA to protect my computer.

I have recently done a system restore about 3 weeks ago and it fixed a super slow issue it was having at the time and now it appears to have another slowed issue again. The only restore point I have left is the original one from when I first got my computer about a year ago. I am a little hesitant to use it.

I think I need some help to fix this annoying issue, please.

Thank you in advance
