Ok, i didn't really know where to post this..
But yesterday i scanned my computer for viruses and i had one in my system file, the anti-virus program didn't remove it, it couldn't do it, and replyed it's great danger of that virus, ok the scanner showed me the source wich lied in a Map wich wasn't in that map it was supposed to lie in(My system file), i believe it is an invisible map with the virus keeping program inside. I can't afford a anti-virus program, only free, anyone know how to help me? U know a good anti virus program??? It start affecting my computer and internet work badly! :cry:

Ok, now i have done all this..
Log on as Administrator.
Right-click the My Computer icon on the desktop and click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Select Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply > Yes > OK.
Continue with the scan/clean process. Files under the _Restore folder can now be deleted.

Now you will need to run the scan and delete the files in the _Restore folder.

If you want a good free antivirus program I would recommend AVG. It is very good at stopping your computer from getting a virus and seems ok at removing them. It can be downloaded here.

Maybe you need to Display hidden files and folders
Go to Start > Run
Enter: control folders
Go to the View tab.
Check "Show hidden files and folders"
Uncheck "Hide protected Operating System files"
Click OK

PS. hey, I love blondes :D

Darn, sorry my fault, you can't see this _Restore folder Kikey because it is located inside another folder called System Volume Information and if you already disabled System Restore you don't need to do nothing more. Disabling system restore removes all inside this folders.

Take a look here:

*Chuckles* So you like blondes huh? Well after all, we blondes have more fun, wich i noticed after coloring it :P

Well i try scanning it again and try letting the houseware scan delete the infected stuff, or do it myself when it shows the source of the virus, now that i can view the hidden files, if that doesen't work i have ignored something wich is the typical blonde who have allways been hidden in me, just that it shows now, lol *sighs* ok i quit joking and see the results and how it goes ;)

I like blondes as well, a lot of guys do and if your avatar is really you than I really really like blondes.

But I digress, back to the task at hand.

Another option to try is doing the scan in Safe Mode. You can enter safe mode by restarting your PC and hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you get a list of options. Choose Safe Mode with networking. Run your virus scans that way, you might get better results.
