    try using Qucikheal 9.0 trial version.

    It will definitely remove viruses from your system.

  • From my research, I find bitdefender as the best anti-virus software. It was the only anti-virus that managed to catch all my trojans. So I would suggest you use that: http://www.bitdefender.com/site/Downloads/


    Since you seem to be unable to install any new software, they also have a free online scan: http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html


    If you are sure your computer is full of viruses, then it would probably be a good idea to format and start over. Windows has a half life anyway. BitDefender might remove all your viruses but you just can't be too sure as you might have been infected by a rootkit because logically a system with a lot of malwares has a 90% chance of having being rooted as well. So all in all, might be a good idea to just take a few backups and format.

  • get your mcafee updated or try norton 2008 trial of 15 days to get the virus removed

  • follow the link below to download bitdefender file (only a few kb) and run the scan should be able to detect some :




    ur registry might be corrupted..... for that u can check microsoft's following link to repair it using RECOVERY CONSOLE




    the easiest way is to---------

     get ur hard drive attached to ur friend's computer and run a virus scan with his antivirus and malware removal tools. This is generally a good idea if u don't want ur hard drive to be formated.
