wildman10,
> 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

AntiVirus
AntiVir
http://www.free-av.com/
AVG

2 FREE anti virus programs.

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