|I was trying to post this on the security and virus forum but it wouldn't let me post there.|
My computer is running slow and i'm pretty sure its because of a virus or trjoan or something like that. Ive tried antivirus programs, spyware and what not but i dont think theyve helped. my problems are listed below and I was going to poat a hijackthis log but the screen told me not to...can someone please help? thanks
1) I have IEXPLORE.EXE running as one of my processes taking up a lot of memory and from what i've searched its a virus that i need help getting rid of.
2) I did a search using Prevx and its telling me i have a worm, in C:\programfiles\common\helper.dll.
3) I have some files, movies, that I downloaded that I'm trying to delete but either a message comes up saying that another program is using it, or its just that deleting the file is not an option. How can i delete these, in case they are viruses?
4) Generally my computer is really really slow to do anything...start up, open pages etc.
