Hi,
My daughter's pc has viruses which I cannot remove.
I am also finding it impossible to get her wireless network to connect.
I would appreciate any help.
I can connect her PC via ethernet. So hopefully can use online help??
Thanks
Sarah

Which anti virus and malware software have you got installed?

Hi Tullie,
Thank you for your reply.
I am using ad aware and it is showing trojan downloaders amongst other things.

Ad aware offers the option to remove them, but they dont go!

You need an anti virus programme,adaware only cleans spyware etc.
I recommend Avast anti virus which is free.Download it without haste and do a thourogue scan.Also download spybot search and destroy and ccleaner,both free.

Avast wouldent do that,did you get rid of viruses etc?Tell us what your operating system is,type of router and isp please

os is windows xp pro
router is bt vogager 2091
isp is bt broadband

I ran avast at boot up,which found lots of infected files ....thanks for that one.
It gave me options, I chose delete all, a couple of times the scan stopped and asked if I wanted to delete an infected windows
file ....I said yes to all
on startup there were boxes to say some files were not found.
Now internet will not work. i am taking ethernet out of this pc to use, so works fine on this one still.
