    Download AVG anti virus. It's free and is pretty simple to use. AVG have a few other tools too that are beneficial.

    Just scan and rescan and rescan

    I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials,
    Be sure you have a legal install of Windows before trying to install it. Duh.
    Installing Microsoft software from their site do check first on your PC if you are legal.

    You might have to buy an anti virus in that case, you can get a Kaspersky license for about R200 for the year (look for the one that only covers one pc).
    Or you can try reformatting your pc, you will lose everything though :(

    Les, if you are going to buy an anti virus, then get ESET, it's the best imho.

    MS Security Essentials is the best. It comes as standard with Windows 8 called Windows Defender. Just update it regularly.
