I tried installing a cracked version of fraps on my computer and it turned out to be a very bad virus. all my windows are blinking very fast, the virus is like deselecting every window i open(it's even hard to type, it like deselects) my mouse pointer is always in the busy state, and i don't know how to get rid of it. I'm running AVG anti-virus right now but it might be out of date and it won't let me update, because it keeps deselecting during the update process. Can some one please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

try running another anti-virus program, i have avg and its lived up to my expectations but i got this bad virus one time and avg couldnt get rid of it, so i downloaded a program called Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and it got rid of it so now use AVG, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and spybot search and destroy and they are compatible with each other :)  so my baby is running smooth virus free for months :) 
so try Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware it works well and finds stuff/gets rid of stuff that avg didnt
