I'll keep it short and simple. My father thinks he accidently opened an email attachment that had a worm in it. His [work] boss has to send out mass emails to all of the employees, and he just told everyone that his computer was infected, and that the attachment sent out possibly was too.
This was about a month ago. I was starting to doubt that we were infected. AVG didn't pop up to say anything was wrong (normally an AVG window comes up when something is wrong/infected). I did a full computer scan with AVG, a full scan with Malwarebytes: Anti-Malware, and a full scan with ESET online scanner. Nothing! Please note these were not done in Safe Mode, just "regular" mode I guess.
In the last month, I'v noticed a tremendous amount of lag. Safari crashes at least 5 times a day (I am on the computer/internet at least 8 hours a day). I have gotten the Blue Screen of Death crash once, although I've gotten it many times in the past before this whole issue.
Just today, I've noticed that on Safari, I'll be on a page and suddenly it will just refresh. I did not click refresh, I did not push F5. I have no idea why it's doing this, and this is the first time. It does it at least once every 5 minutes, but not on all websites. Also, about every few minutes, my mouse will stop moving and everything will kind of freeze for like 10 seconds, and then it's fine again.
Please help me get rid of this virus. I am just so frustrated and just want it gone.
