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.

If you think you may have a virus then it's better to post at an appropiate section under Security Forum.

After the Zone Alarm security scan was finished my computer was back to normal. So as of now no problem. Thanks
