I think I have malware, a worm, Trojan or...something suspicious is on my pc and I cannot get ride of it. My windows appearance has changed. My wireless connections shuts down every minute In addition, my pc takes a long time to boot up and shut down. I dare not provide any personal information on my pc because of privacy concerns. I am currently using AVAST free edition. I need some real help on this one. Oh yeah, I installed Viper anti-virus (?) about 6 months ago, and I have not been able to get rid of that program either. All suggestions and advice is welcome. Thanks in advance.

1-was that before viper?
2-Did you used to have Norton on that laptop?
3-If so, did you use the Norton uninstaller from the website?
Try regcleaner to remove viper remnants, etc

These next 3 always seem to nip things in the bud for me

1-Malwarebytes

2-Trojan remover

3-Hitman Pro

They remove anything from spyware to rootkits. Good Luck ;-)
