Scan your PC with these.
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.
SUPERAntiSpyware is the most thorough scanner on the market. Our Multi-Dimensional Scanning and Process Interrogation Technology will detect spyware that other products miss! SUPERAntiSpyware will remove ALL the Spyware, NOT just the easy ones!
Easily remove over 100,000 pests such as SmitFraud, Vundo, WinFixer, SpyAxe, SpyFalcon, WinAntiVirus, AntiVermins and thousands more!
Make sure after you download any of these, that you update them.

There are many programs that say they will stop viruses and spyware, but they are lying. You need to get two things. 1) Spybot Search and Destroy and 2) AVG Free Antivirus. ALSO, run Housecall from trendmicro.
NOTE: Get updates first, THEN disconnect from the Web when you run these programs, then restart, do NOT CONNECT to the Web yet, and run them again. Don't turn off SpyBot when you turn off the system. When at trendmicro, select "Scan Now It's Free"Source(s): http://www.download.com/3001-2239_4-10596553.html http://www.download.com/3001-8022_4-10401314.html http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

Any working equipment you run will choose AntiVirus, Malware Scanners, and a Firewall to be certain optimal risk-free practices. New viruses and undercover agent ware are more desirable every day. Even information businesses discovered IE 8 is subjected to unauthorized get admission to with a backdoor at the instant discovered. Apple is likewise subjected to viruses. be certain you install a ideal notch protector like AVG/Avast/Norton/McAfee.

If there were no viruses then there would be no need for anti-virus software, put two and two together and you get four.......
Ever since I got Norton anti-virus I've had nothing but problems, more viruses have gotten into my pc since I got it than when i didn't.
I've been told that the good ones to get are Secure IE or e-trust. I've had pc-cillin and it doesn't work and from my experience with Nortons I won't be buying it again either. I'm not sure what the free web site is.

Yes I've done some research and found that there are company's who create these nastys so that you can download their anti-virus programs. But you should be careful not to download just anything.For viruses & trojans i'd sugest "AVG free". For spyware i'd suggest " Ad-aware" & "Spybot search and destroy". These are currently all free and they're not trials. You can download them on Downloads.com
