    Default Antivir

    Okay, this isn't actually a fluffy post, I really do need help.

    Antivir has managed to worm its way into my computer system, and for some reason I cannot seem to uninstall programs via control panel.

    What is more, all my desktop icons have disappeared.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Microsoft Security Essentials is one of the best free antivirus/antimalware programs out there right now. Also, something like Antimalware bytes is good too. I'd give it a good scrub. If not, reformat time baby, since it doesn't sound like you'll be able to do a system restore.

    If I download Antimalware bytes, does it matter if I just get the free version, or the full one?

    Not sure but it should be fine. Really the microsoft one is the best, and most complete utility I've used. I'd try that one first.

    Okay, I downloaded it, but it says I need to open the link with a file...?

    (I am sorry, you are going to have to hold my hand through this)

    Well save it to disk. Open and run. I'd do a full scan, might take a while if you've got a lot of stuff saved.

    Opening, or actually not. It won't open. It does the same thing as the uninstall programs: nothing.
