    Hey all, I am so new to this. My buddy sent me here because he got his problems solved. I hope someone can help me. I have a trojen horse virse that is embedded. I have nortons but it just catches it and does not delete. I also have AVG and it catches it but does not delete. How to I get ride of it. My computer has slowed down. I think I also have spyware on here because when I sign on the internet I get a couple of sites that just pop up and then I just close them. Sometimes I get about 28 different screens pop up and I have to close them before I can do anything. What is going on. Is there anything I can get to get rid of these? Thanks for any help.
