    Root kit virus

    Sighhhhh.......

    I seem to have picked up a root kit virus. My anti virus software detects it and tells me its there and quarantines it and scans my computer but it keeps coming back. Anyone know a good reliable method of getting rid iof it.......preferably free

    Cheers K

    This is what you need

    I would also suggest you run the following, take the tick out of the trail for the premium version when doing the install.

    You don't have to be dead to be a donor.

    Education is what remains after that which has been learnt, has been forgotten.
