What to do when you have a computer virus

If you believe your computer may have been infected, you should run a virus scanning program and then follow the advice of your antivirus software on how to remove the virus. If you want to learn more about protecting your computer with antivirus software, we recommend you go to either McAfee's Website or Norton's Website and follow their instructions on how to remove the virus.
