    use online scanners

    http://www.cleancomputerhelp.com/home/

    Also install Avast 4 Home, its free and competes well against paid programs. Does better than AVG(not opinion FACT) reviews by PCworld and consumer reports.

    You also need ad aware, spybot s&d and cyberhawk.

    they all can be found at the website I gave you.

    I suggest installing Avast antivirus first then doing a boot scan.

    If that doesn't find them then go do an online scan.

    sometimes viruses can detect when antivirus gets installed and can hide from them.

    First off, you want to steer clear of products such as AVG and Avast. Just because they are free does not mean they are good. In countless competent independent comparative tests, both AVG and Avast have scored very poorly in the virus and malware detection/disinfection areas. Notepad is free too but you wouldn't want to rely on it for protection.

    There are a number of high quality AV products out there, most of them are commercial products. Of the free products, Kaspersky Anti-Virus, distributed under the name Active Virus Shield is your best option. Kaspersky has consistantly scored extremely high in the detection of both viruses and non-replicating malware for several years. It updates frequently and uses little resources to run it.

    You can download it at www.activevirusshield.com

    You can use the Avg virus scanner, and when they tell you where the virus is, Go to the location and Manually delete them. It would help if you had washing program like Window washer, You can send it to the recicling bin then have the software fully delete it.

    AVG virus is by far the best free scanner out there. Don't bother with the crappy online versions - they can't get inside your system - and frankly you don't want them to.

    Also, if that doesn't work; you might have to reinstall your OS. I had to do that one time. It's not fun, but it definiately speed things up.

    You might also want to look at spyware. Adaware is a good program:
