I am having a problem with an application that was inadvertenly put on my computer. I run Windows XP, and use Ad-Aware SE and Avast Antivirus. Unfortunately, my niece decided to add to my computer another application called Win Pro Antivirus 2006.
Since that was put on the computer, I am unable to run any applications because Win Pro Antivirus starts to immediately run when the computer boots to the desktop. I mean that the desktop will show, but the WinVirus starts to run, so what is happening is that my startup desktop page freezes, the mouse does not move, and Win Pro AntiVirus then leaves corrupted sentences (pieces)of itself on the desktop page.
Has anyone had any experience with this application (malware) and is there a specific software that will remove this app? I cannot even go to the Control Panel to remove this junk, the desktop remains dead, with no active movement of cursor, mouse, and I cannot even click on any application so that it can run.
Please help me, you smart people out there. I go to online school and cannot even use my computer.
Thanks very much in advance for your help. Please tell me how I can get that app off my computer. Please remember that the mouse does not work, nothing works. Thanks.
