[PW] Wellington - AAAAHHH

(no subject)

Argh... I've got a nasty trojan on my computer, and I have no idea how it got there. It upsets me because I take so many precautions to keep my computer protected. I haven't had an infection in... I don't know how long, but I know it's been several years. I don't even know how this happened. I set my computer to do a scan every two days, and this morning it performed without error. Then we went to the recycling center, and when I returned, my computer had reset itself and, BOOM, unexplained virus.

AVG found the file and deleted it, but it apparently didn't get rid of the infection. I've been at this for hours now. I can't open any of my browsers (Firefox, IE, Chrome) because they either shutdown the minute they open or try to lead me to some fake anti-virus software.

Arrrgh, so much anger. >_
