    Hi, scan your HDD with online scanner.

    Get a decent anti virus software. Avast free version sucks. Good luck.

    HI
    ACCORDING TO U WHICH ONE IS A GUD ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE WHICH IS FREEWARE:) I TRIED THE ABOVE LINK BUT THEY DIDNT WORK
  3. What didn't work for you ? These are online virus scanner and free to use. It is to scan your computer for viruses. Did you do that ?

    There are no good and free antivirus software out there. If you want a decent one than you have to pay for it. To me ESET is pretty decent and I use it personally, and its not free.
