Specs: Windows Vista
my computer is being attacked by several viruses and I cannot even do a system restore or open any of the other programs. this started yesterday when my norton antivirus expired and right away things started happening. I bought a new antivirus software program but it is not being allowed to even open.
what do i do now?
I cannot afford to take it in to a computer person, so i gotta do this myself.
any ideas?

You mention you cannot do a System Restore - have you tried
starting in Safe Mode and running System Restore from there
when you're offered the option?

I would suggest you use the norton uninstaller from their website to remove Norton or nothing else will work for you:

You didn't have to buy an anti-virus, I would suggest Avast Free:
Install that and have Avast do a Bootscan on reboot and move ALL it finds to the chest.

You should also run
1- Malwarebytes
2- Trojan Remover:
3- Hitman Pro

Run them all untill clean and then uninstall Trojan Remover and Hitman Pro as they are only 30 day free trials.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers
