there is a way to avoid viurs, disconnect your internet or stay off those p0rn sites. Depends on the damage, restore may or may not work. You may have to reinstall everything again.

AVG Free

its free antivirus and it works great. i use it personally and for clients of mine.

btw i never use system restore it takes up too many resources. disable it.

and if you have a virus program that is giving you viruses, well you sir my friend have dl'd a virus not a antivirus program. i have NEVER EVER heard of a legit antivirus program infecting a PC with a virus.

I second that.

I have used AVG for years and been trouble free pretty much ever since.

see the problem with that one is that it kills resources. trust me you really wouldnt see it on high end machine, but try AVG. you will be happy. just disable the boot up scan.
