(first post) The 5step method didnt work for me. too many errors. My computer has been acting VERY slow, random (annoying) music has been playing on my desktop and i can not turn it off, and my task manager has been "disabled by administrator" but my account is the only one on this computer and im supposed to be administrator. this has been happening since i downloaded a file (the one time i dont scan a file before opening it, right?) and opened it. OH! my mcafee JUST detected a worm on my computer as im typing this. OK! my screen just went red, 3 IE windows opened, and i just got a whole bunch of windows security alerts. all this just happened after i clicked to remove the worm with mcafee... kinda hard to kill all these pop ups. i have in the lower right corner instead of the clock, it says "VIRUS ALERT!" well, i need to get off and sleep. but it would be nice to get a reply on this here sitiation. ill check this tomorrow maybe. any help appreciated, please.
