I'm pretty sure I have a virus and need help
Posted on 2011-09-19
Hi, I'm sure my computer has some type of virus. When I login I don't get my usually desktop background. At first I was getting a "Data Recovery" message that was saying I was having problems with my RAM, Registry, and Hard drive. Then I found out this was something that wanted me to pay 75 dollars to "fix" for me. I can't see anything on the Hard drive.
I logged in under a different login and I was able to get to the desktop for that login and I installed and ran McAfee. It said if found 63 problems and fixed or quaruntined them all. I go back to my main user login and I still can't access my desktop and still can't see any programs. My computer is responding alot slower than usual also.
Can someone suggest anything else, or have I lost everything?
