    Hello, try to use some antyvirus on-line scaner to look what is a type of virus's. Then try antivirus programs for it. If it's can't remove it try format [hard drive]. Virus's generally attack base system file, not outside software. Good luck.

    jump drive.. it wont infect the jump drive but may be attached to files you copy to the jump drive. It's just a storage media.
    After copying files, just scan it.

    Yes they will posibilly jump, you have no clue what is infected. Are they actual virus, or spyware?

    What's probably happening is you are not removing the actual bug, so everytime you boot it gets reloaded.

    Update your Scanners.. Virus, and spyware and do it in safe mode. Any Anti-virus is fine, Spyware scanners are Windows defender, Spybot, and adaware.

    Also check for rootkits with Blacklight.

    Hi Van,

    Off the top of my head Advast and Grisoft's AVG 7 are two good ones. I used AVG for over 6 or more years. I only stopped using it because Comcast (my ISP) "gives" McAfee to its subscribers.

    If you have broadband do an online virus scan at Trend Micros "Housecall".

    Just Google for them... I'm in a bit of a hurry.

    Good luck,

    Bob.

    It takesa while but its good, and can't be corrupted by virus's as it's not on your computor

    AVG: not super but excellent.
