I've been infected with torpig, Spybot tells me, but no matter what I do to try and remove it it doesn't get deleted at all and I think I've got other viruses too, only they aren't detected at all.

And being computer illiterate, I have no idea how to go about doing anything,

Torpig.AE is a password stealer type Trojan that obtains passwords and information about the computer such as the IP address, operating system, free memory space, RAM memory and CPU clock speed.

Additionally, it downloads several files from the Internet.

Torpig.AE does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs an attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer. The means of transmission used include, among others, floppy disks, CD-ROMs, email messages with attached files, Internet downloads, FTP, IRC channels, peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks, etc.


Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
