I just bought a new, well refurbished computer. We have been having problems with it from almost the beginning. The virus scan started off with a complete system scan in about 10 minutes or so, now it takes almost an hour and says there are 1.8 million files. The last time I watched it, it said about 500,000. We have downloaded very little, although some things we have had to reinstall several times. They keep disappearing???

Sorry I don't know how to explain any better. We also had the virus burster, but we didn't execute or anything. I moved the icon it displayed on the desktop into the recycle bin and it shows up in scans, but I other than that, I don't see anything of it?"??

Can someone help me before it's too late?

Hi scouter00 and Welcome to Bleeping Computer,
Why don't you start by following the instructions in the Self Help Guide on How To Remove Virusbursters.
This will walk you step-by-step through the removal process.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
