ive been using Ad-aware and AVG free just as a general precaution on my computer, scanning occasionally and they've never picked up anything serious. The other day i thought id try a pay to use scanner but with a free scan and it found a list of virsus, trojans and whole host of other nasty. Could anyone recommend a good way of getting rid of this, like a more realible free scanner, or are my choices, reinstall or pay for a scanner

Many thanks

Tomo
