I have to tell you that I had gotten that awful Rogue.VistaAntivirus2008 back in July 2007. I am pretty sure I've fixed it but I may be wrong.
Ever since then, I cannot install anything, my gmail notifier stopped working, I can't connect to certain things like IRC chats, my screen randomly blinks white (it's fast and noticeable but it's not as big of an issue as the rest). I've asked my friends what to do since some of them are computer geeks. They aren't sure what it could be.
I've thought of reformatting my computer but I'm not THAT computer savvy. I am afraid of destroying my laptop. I don't want to buy a new one either if this one is just fine.
I'm at a loss here.
