To remove the virus, install first the Norton Antivirus and from their web site download the "Power Eraser." Run it on yr computer - it will remove into the Recycle Bin that part of yr system which is infected. Delete it from the Bin. Windows XP is the best operating system I know, but I use it on a second computer that I never connect on the I-net. I play the Harry Potter games on it. Because the "upgrades" are pushed on us online, and each new version is more simplified than the former ones, with less choices and boxed up unit solutions. At present I use Win7. I have the disc of it to reinstall when necessary, but when the Win10 was pushed on me forcibly as an online upgrade, I had to switch hard drives to reinstall my original Win7. My favorite operating system is the XP - it gives a lot of manouvering possibilities, and it plays also CDs and MP3s. The Win7 plays DVD movies well with its media player, that's it. We are being pushed forward with the upgrades, away from the former media formats, toward a single media future - the past is being erased, like in Orwell's 1984. The future will be one single source, the I-net. which is controlled by BB (this means Brigitte Bardot?). If you upgrade, you will lose the use of some of your former media formats. Same with your Office applications - they are becoming more primitive, simple, standardized, with boxed up prefabricated solutions and less choices. The best Office application is Office 2000, it's absolutely superb (it works with Windows 98 operating system) with even computer drawing possibilities, but the Office 2007 is more primitive, and who knows how dumb the higher Office versions are. The XP works with Win Office 2003, which is rather good too. Microsoft don't give tech support for the XP anymore, so maybe that virus was given to you, fella, as a "support" to force you toward buying the standardized, simplified higher Win operating systems. Just for yr information: the Win operating systems, all of them, contain a "Service Pack 2, 3 or 4," which are spy programs that report to a center the contents of yr computer and yr activities in each session. Years ago I connected to the I-net my computer that worked with the XP and I had saved on its hard drive some controversial articles from the media and the I-net - the moment I connected it to the Net to download a media application, my Norton (it was in 2010) signaled to me that "there was an attack against my computer from the Microsoft Server system" and my XP application became erratic. I had to reinstall its former, original version. I have my interesting stuff saved on DVD now and I avoid connecting that computer on the Net, which is controlled by the military. Brigitte Bardot is watching us.
