Virus eating my laptop, help needed!

Post by TRG » Tue Jul 18, 2006 9:14 pm

I'm too sexy to know computers, and this iworm-attc v122.02 thing is popping up every goddam 3 seconds and I get popups with online casinos and russian brides...there's nothing wrong with casinos or russian brides, I'd just like to choose when I'm interested in them..So...I ran antivirus and spyware removal tools, nothing helped, saw some mind-bending solutions on geek forums but can't really replicate them, anyone ever gone thru this?
