> anti virus mor

I am not sure what you meant by this .
But you should install an anti-virus program asap and run it .. It would delete it provided it has all the latest virus definitions.

Act soon cos your system might be affected more and more

2 FREE anti virus programs.

also download these since it is most likely that you also have spy/malware installed.
