    Default I think my desktop has a virus

    Just today when I had to open an attachment for a new job, my computer started to suddenly slow down, and it wouldn't open the file.

    Now my computer is running slow as sin. In running a full system scan, it is estimated to run until 6pm tomorrow!!

    damn sounds like u are fucked. i dont have much help for how to get rid of the virus other than letting the antivirus run for now..

    but in the future, use norton av and keep the autoprotect on.

    Another fix would be to simply reformat right? Dammit that sucks

    kinda. u have to backup the stuff u want to keep, and in doing so u might retain the virus in your backed up stuff. plus reformats are a bitch so see if the antivirus can fix it or at least id the virus for u.

    i can send u norton antivirus 2004 if u want.
