Answers :

Go to www.download.com There you will find several very good and free virus and spyware removal tools. I personally recommened spybot search and destroy. Lavasofts, Ad-Aware and AVG's Anti-Virus Free. They are all freeware you can download there at no cost and run them first to try and eliminate the viruses on your machine.
Here are some recommendations for free software that will get rid of the virus and/or adware that is affecting your computer. I personally recommend these packages. Download at least Avast or AVG. If you decide on Clamwin, also download an anti-spyware tool. It is a good idea to download all of the anti-spyware tools because sometimes one catches something that the others will not.

\015\012Free antivirus tools:
\015\012Avast! Antivirus (recommended). Free. Works. Doesn’t trash your system resources. Includes an anti-spyware kit.

\015\012
\015\012Clamwin (what I use). Free. Works. Uses no resources. Does not work automatically. Advanced users/risk takers only.

\015\012
\015\012Grisoft AVG (what I used to use). Free. Works. Gets slightly more annoying with each version, but is still a favorite of many. Includes an anti-spyware module. Works great.

\015\012Free Anti-Spyware Tools:
\015\012 It’s best to have ALL of them and run them periodically. The first time your run them, you need to run them multiple times until each one shows no more threats:
\015\012
\015\012Lavasoft AdAware. Get this. Use it. Repeat every month or so
\015\012http://www.lavasoft.com/products/ad_aware_free.php
\015\012
\015\012Spy-Bot Search and Destroy. Get this one, too. Use it. Repeat every month or so.

\015\012OTHER TIPS:
\015\012· To reduce spyware, use an alternative browser like Firefox, Google Chrome, or Opera
\015\012· To reduce virus attacks, buy a router, which acts as a better firewall than any software can. It allows you to share your Internet connection as well.
