Hello everyone! This forum has been very valuable to me in the past; I'm hoping someone can help me.
I have Windows XP Home Version (32-bit, whatever that means). For a few weeks now, I've noticed that my computer freezes occasionally or the browser has trouble responding. I downloaded Google Chrome but could never actually pull up a page on it. I thought that was wierd. But what alerted me to the problem was a scan by Microsoft Security Essentials that told me I had Trojan:DOS/Rovnix.D and recommended I quarantine it. However, I couldn't find a way to quarantine it. I did a few searches for instructions to get rid of it, but the searches they had me do were confusing. I couldn't actually tell if it had done anything, since it doesn't always freeze or act wierd. The only way I'm sure I still have it is by doing the Security Essentials scan again. I know I need to get rid of it, because it's a dangerous trojan.
Any ideas for me? And can you use small words? lol
