First of all,

There are several good (and free) anti-virus programs out there, I like MS Security Essentials.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/sec...

Download it and do a full scan and then remove the malware it finds.

I've never switched an OS from one to the other, so I can't help you there.

Mike

Ah, I'm new to this forum, and I didn't see that there is actually a good guide to removing malware in a sticky thread in this forum. Check it out!

Also, u can kill all the viruses by installing Win 7, by choosing the option to format the drive before the install.
