With that much crap on your computer it would be best to reformat and reinstall and get protection for the new install.Hey southernlady in the last year about 80% ofall the computers that Ive repaird were internet related either malware or viruses.The internet is gr8 for busness.People need to wise up to how bad it is.

sPlAtOiD, malware is the biggest cause of computer problems these days...I have three threads linked in my signature that deal with that. Liz

I'm assuming you've GOT a firewall, but if not, when you reformat, download ZoneAlarm. It's never caused me any problems.

stop downloadingf from sites like kazaa.

kazaa is making me rich. more people get viruses off it

after you reformat.

I would go with southernlady's advice and install adaware, sybot and spyware blaster plus antivirus and firewall

This mainly becuz u didnt install any anti-virus program and internet privacy protection.
The only thing u could do now is format ur comp and reinstall everything.
