Hi there, all! Thanks in advance for helping me. I most assuredly need it!
My other computer was infected with XP Anti-Virus 2011, when my husband was attempting to download an iPod fix of some sort. It's sort of an extra computer, used only for itunes and pictures. So I'm not even sure what the latest anti-virus software on there is. I see I have Malwarebytes and Spybot. I thought I had AVG but I can't see it....
Anyhoo, did I mention I'm not too technologically inclined?
The worst part is that the virus is redirecting me online no matter what browser I use, or where I try to go. That's where I start feeling violent towards it.
The computer in question has XP Home edition. It is networked to this laptop, which is Vista.
So I guess my questions are:
1. Is there some way I can download spyware on this computer and run it on that computer? OR that I can use what I have on this one (AVG) to clean that one? Or, if there's another anti-virus program you recommend (preferably free?)
2. Is there some way I can start it in safe mode and manually remove the virus? It's true that I'm not much of a techie, but I'm pretty damn kick-ass at following directions. It's true!
THANK YOU most kindly! I'm signing off for tonight so I don't destroy either computer. I appreciate any help anyone can give.
