My vaio has a virus and I don't know what to do. There's a pop-up that won't close and makes a constant alarm sound? I'm wiping the drive which I'm not even sure is necessary? Has anyone solved this kind of problem before that can walk me through removing the virus? I really don't know much about computers

Hi there first I will need a look at the system

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
  • Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Select additions at the bottom
  • Press Scan button.

  • It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.
  • Please attach both logs generated.
THEN

Download aswMBR.exe ( 4.5mb ) to your desktop.
Double click the aswMBR.exe to run it.
You may be offered the option of using virtualisation, accept that
When it offers to download the virus database allow that as well
Click the "Scan" button to start scan

On completion of the scan click save log, save it to your desktop and post in your next reply
