Hello everyone,

first off, i'm pretty much a noob when it comes to all this computer stuff, so please bare with me...

for a while now my pc has been seriously bugging out, screen freezing, programs not opening etc, and today i got a pop up saying something along the lines of "your pc is bugged, download winfixer 2005 to fix all the probs". So i did, and i even paid the £25 to get it.

Don't laugh if i'm being tremendously naive here... i'd just had anough of my pc not working properly, norton wasnt doing much at all, so i thought i'd give it a go...

And now i'm stressed that this Winfixer may be dodgy, it may be sharing my files over the net, spying into my pc, eating my pc from the inside, planning a military coup (u get the idea - i'm a stressed and paranoid man)...

Does anyone here know if this software ive downloaded a) is legit, b) won't mess with my pc, c) might actually do some good?

I'm sorry if this is something you've already discussed a million times, just don't have the time to read all the posts here...

U have a malware infection.
Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.
