    Whatever anti-virus and spyware program you use please do it right by using it in safe mode. Press the F8 key when you restart the computer. This forces the computer to only run windows programs. Viruses spyware and trojans like to hide in applications that are running in the background

    Go onto and download Rkill, after doing that run it. Then on the same website get malwarebytes and run that. This should get rid of any spyware or malware. For viruses get an anti-virus system, ESET NOD32 works VERY well for me.

    Don't download the free anti-virus AVG, it makes your computer really slow. Any free one isn't the best, mind as well spend some money and get a GOOD anti-virus.
