i agree with sisco.
i caught the antivrus 2009 bug and it fried my home pc. oddly enough, the only place i have seen it was through myspace.
a work friend in IT had a device that let me back up all my music and personal files from the fragged hd to an external. wiped it and reinstalled the os and everything else.
i tried malwarebytes and it would not load. byt the time i was going to try avg-free, it was dead, would not even boot.
malwarebytes is a good way to go.
so is avg-free, esp'ly since it scans incoming and outgoing e-mails.
i also heard of another, i think it is called clamwins. i know IT folks and systems engineers that swear by it.
good luck to you. my corp keeps everything locked down so tight we cannot install anything on our laptops -- freeware, owned software, printers. the joys of working for a huge corp. but, if it got busted or fried by my starbucks, they'd replace it. give me flack, but replace it.

tankers, thanks for all of the valuable info. I got my pc fixed and working fine. Just got a little file clean up left. While we are on the subject of pc's, does anyone know of any softwares that can be installed to delete old cookies or files to help enhance the pc's speed (to reach the speed that my pc originally had when it was newer)?

I'm sorry but I can't beleive people fall for that crap. The so-called anti-virus program IS the virus and naive people download the virus willingly. Get yourself a really good antivirus program like Kaspersky and try to get all the crap out.

I can't see why you'd be fired for that, though. These types of things are the reason your company has an IT department. Have you been doing something with your work lap-top that contradict company policy? If you have, then just come clean with the IT guy and he'll resolve the problem without brinig your superiors into it. Unless, of course, the IT guy is a total d-bag.

Also, never click on any pop up that says you have viruses and they want to scan. Even clicking No or Xing it out will sometimes not help. Whenever something like that pops up on my pc, I go to Windows Task Manager>Applications tab>End Task.
If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

download ccleaner if you want to clean up your cookies, temp and unnecessary files.
also if you use Firefox you can set the program to clear your private data (cookies and temp internet files) on exit.
