Hi James_43 - Check out these tips for removing viruses from Windows Vista - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/How-do...

If you have the original Vista installation disk, you can reinstall Vista, but it is always best to try to remove the virus(es) first. To reinstall, just pop in the Vista disk and follow the instructions given.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,

Do you have Acer eRecovery on your Acer machine if so you can do a full restore with it. Copy all the files you want to keep but remember to a virus scan on them.
