I'm running AVG anti-virus and it found 5 viruses on my system. It's called backdoor.optix.BI and irc/backdoor.sdbot.17.BQ. These viruses don't allow me to acess any of my programs. It will sayC:\windows..... cannot find. It locked me out of backing up anything to my cd or dvd or floppy drive. I was able to do a virus scan my right clicking my hard drive and clicking the scan w/ avg anti-virus, but when i run avg removemal it just locks up and says not responding.  Im running windows XP. I've tried to run stuff in safe-mode with the same results. I'm somewhat of a computer novice so any help would be apprciated. At this point i'd be happy if there was a way to save some of my files to a cd, if theres a way to do it through prompt. Thanks

You might have to remove the hard drive from the system and scan it from another system. Then when cleaned put it back in the original system.

Protecting your computer can't be answered with one issue.

As you can see in my url below there are at least 7 different issues, where you should decide 1 of each, or else you does'nt protect your computer at all.

The reason is, that the many different programs not always protects against each other, and each of them does'nt protect equally.

It's very important, that you study all of these issues in my knowledgebase (some of them are freeware):

BTW: I'm using the Trend Micro virus-suite, and SoftScan , and haven't got any of my servers or computers infected the last 4 years.
