Computer overtaken by automatic download

\015 Hello. I went on computer and opened up Azureus that was previously downloaded by daughter. Did not download anything. Have never used this program. Program opened up and some automatic download started. I was then alerted that computer had virus and an alleged program called Antivirus Pro was the only solution to help my infected computer. Popup box with this info and another pop up allegedly from Microsoft of which it obviously was not. Also had popups in alleged Internet Explorer browser of which is diabled on computer since I use Firefox. Pop ups for Viagra and Cialis and to a site ****.com. I clicked off of this items and they repeatedly come back. Antivirus is AVG free. I scanned comptuer twice and items were detected and then quarantined but the aforementioned incidents continued afterwards. AVG seems to be disabled along with much of everything else on computer. Help!\015

Answers :

If Azureus opened and started downloading something, chances are it was an automatic update for it, and not a virus. Azereus is a pretty reliable torrenting program. Anyway, what you can do is download combofix. Then boot it in safemode with networking and run combofix. It should clear off any viruses you may have and fix your problems. Also, you may want to consider changing Anti-Viruses, as AVG, while decent, isn't always that reliable.
