Hi maradei,

Those you removed were anti-viruses most probably. If your system is running without an anti-virus, get one as soon as possible because it is very unsafe to run a pc without an anti-virus! I reccomend AVG, it's a very good anti-virus and it's free too. You can download it from here.

i second what alandemartino however if you hve any additional questions regarding this please ask them under your malware removal topic and the guy who helped you out, ought to help you there as this isn't the correct place to ask for this information. http://www.geekstogo...ic=105734&st=15 if you don't know.
thanx

you should have it in your system tray all the time. It will protect you from any viruses you may come across while downloading files or browsing web pages. AVG does not use much resources and will hardly slow your computer down at all
