    i'd try 2 things...one thing is go to your control panel and click on "classic view" so you can see wat you're doing, and click performance and maintenance. Then go to the upper left corner and click on system restore and try to go back to a time when u didnt have it..it doesnt always work but it's worth a try. if that doesnt work you're going to have to reformat your computer

    Use these scans.

    All of these are ones that I personally use and all are free.

    AVG Removes I-Worm/Stration · BackDoor.Generic3.GBB and .GBC · Worm/Generic.FX · Exploit.WMF

    Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.

    Give up using Windows, and install Linux on your computer. Linux is immune to all viruses, malware, spyware and adware.

    Linux is a complete operating system that is either free or very cheap ($10-$30) and comes bundled with a huge variety of free software.

    The Linux desktop is amazingly flexible and customizable, and anyone who is used to Windows will soon feel comfortable with it - and shocked by how dull their old Windows system looks by comparison! For example, in Linux you can use up to twenty (yes twenty) separate desktop work spaces - Windows only gives you one.

    Go to www.distrowatch.com to find out how to get all the popular flavors of Linux...

    ...then do an image search for Linux screen grabs on Google.

    BE COOL - GET LINUX

    well the simplest way to handle this problem is to dowload a free anti-virus scanner such as AVG,MCaffe etc..if this solves ur problem np else go n buy a more effective virus scanner n remover(they r more effective coz they can find out more virus signatures)...

    last option will be to format ur disk.
