Computer: Dell Inspiron 3647
OS: Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Updates: All installed
Security: Full Windows Security Essentials, Zone Alarm (no firewall with one Alarm)
In order to complete the installation of 5 Windows updates and 1 update to Zone Alarm Security I restarted my computer. After the restart the cpu's are running close to 100% all the time. Everything is slow. The scan with Zone Alarm is taken 4 hours so far and not half done. Should of been 30 minutes.
Before I restarted the computer, when it was fine, I was at a web site and a window came on the screen and I saw the word Virus and I closed that page as fast as I could. So I don't know what it said. It probably has something to do with this. It probably said "I'm a low down piece of dog crap and a scum sucking pig who can't hold a job so I put a virus on your computer and if you don't pay me your screwed". I showed him huh. Just guessing.
I restored back 5 days.
I've never had a virus before so I don't really know what to do. I looked at the processes and services but they might as well be in Greek. Maybe they are.
I would appreciate any advice. (No Greek please) Thanks very much.
