Ok,Well I think I have a spyware/virus/adware on my computer, I just think that for these reasons.One Is that my computer went slow and internet too.Second, I can't download nothing from the internet that may help.Third, For some reason my documents,downloads, and desktop were saying they been moved or renamed.Forth, I can't nothing to favorites.Last thing is that i always need to use admin permission to add something like a shortcut plus if i put firefox on the start menu or the shortcut even try to run firefox on task manager it won't run at all.
I used these software that are freeware to try to remove but didn't work really good.
AVG 8.0 Free edtion
Ad-ware 2008(recent)
Spybot search and destroy(recent)
Windows defender
These I downloaded from my old computer to my memory stick to try to remove it that ones that have (recent)
Oh and i uninstalled things that may be causing it but it didn't work.Any suggestions? thx.
