D/L a copy of Malwarebytes its free and works real good to clean out the malware that is letting the virus's in.
Try running it in safemode at first and then after it cleans out most of the mess you can run it again like normal
Oh and get a fresh copy of AVG antivirus and install it also.
Hang in there!

lmao, my pc shut down, and will not stay on after a startup, even in safemode. it shuts down (if i get it to load) in less than 30 seconds.

well, thanks for y'all concerns, and thanks dr. zero for the offer. my step sister went to college to fix problems like this, so she will end up with it. i really hope that she can get it fixed w/o having to re-install everything on my pc

Sorry to hear about your PC problems. This happened to my HP a few years ago so I switched to Apple. I haven't had any issues with them yet.Charles - Nevada

I saved a couple of PC's by take the HD out and installing it in to another PC as a slave drive. Then I ran antispyware/malware scanners on the slave drive to clean it. After the scans came back clean, I reinstall the HD back into the original PC and all was well.
Good Luck!Jared - Ohio
