My computer apparentally has a virus. The scanner says that it's a 'Trojan horse Downloader.Generic.Jad'

It's in my file 'wquom.exe'? It won't go away; I've tried to heal it. How in the world do I get rid of it? >< I can't buy anything; money is scarce.

    Do a full system recovery to the computer if you have the cd it will restore it to factory conditions and your virus will dissapear.

    Download update and do a full system scan with both the free anti-virus and the free anti-spyware

    Turn your System Restore OFF before you scan because when the Trojan is removed the System Restore will see it as a missing file the next time you reboot and put it right back

    Good Luck

  • try running the free online scan at http://houscall.trendmicro.com

    you can then download the thirty day free trial of pc-cilin internet security2007.

    install this suite it scans parts of your computer other scanners fail to scan such as the system volume information file.

    this is most likely where the virus goes to hide from your current scanner. there is no hiding place when you use pc-cilin 2007.

    good luck.

    most virus are spread through IE. IE is not a safe browser. you should use a more secure browser to protect your PC from virus.

    i recommand you to use firefox with Google toolbar. firefox can block any any popup and disable any virus and adware, spyware on webpage, so, firefox is much safer than IE browser. as you know, most of virus spread throught internet and webpage.

    besides, firefox is much smaller than IE, so it run faster than IE.

    download firefox for free, Just have a try:
