I need the best free antivirus/adware software out there NOW!

Yeah so i just got raped. Big time. I think it might have spread at a rapid pace. first i could hear my normal drive crunching, then that stopped and my secondary and mass drives starting freaking out. now they have subsided, but my "Critical Systems Error" is blinking at me, and nothing happens when i double click it.

yes im coming to this conclusion as well.

though if it has spread to the other drives then its not going to make much of a difference, once C is reformatted it would just spread back onto that, wouldnt it? meaning i have to deal with it head on before a reformat.

then i made the mistake of turning it off last night because i woke up to someone talking trying to sell me stuff, and i had like 50,000 popups. i hope it starts back up again.

btw mcafee found 3 trojans and ****loads of other things before i went to bed.

Re: I need the best free antivirus/adware software out there NOW!

what other drives do you have? Are they external? If they are, just format that drive first, then unhook the *****, then move on.

Re: I need the best free antivirus/adware software out there NOW!

i have my main 40gb 10krpm drive for my operating system and high end games (like Quake4 and such), and i have two 60gb drives for storage, one has most my other older games and mp3's, the other has some random **** from my dell (windowblinds, google earth, Autocad2007, etc).

is anyone certain that the two other drives even got infected? how would i know? and how could i be certain that it wont spread once drive C is formatted and re-introduced to the other two again if in fact they are?

**** this **** put me in a pissy mood today.

Re: I need the best free antivirus/adware software out there NOW!

sometime last year i randomly got drilled. I put mcaffee virus scan on after it happened and it picked up like 200,000 things and was still going after like 24 hours of running...and it could not come close to fixing it all.

so i had to reformat...which i needed to anyway, but lets just say, i now have a firewall on at all times.

Look for Nod32 Virus Scan
NOD32 Standard Version (Windows NT/2000/XP) - Free Software Downloads and Software Reviews - Download.com

I have a cracked copy off a forum I am on. Full version kicks ***.

Re: I need the best free antivirus/adware software out there NOW!

yeah im just gonna reformat and hope the virus doesnt spread. my buddy says the virus should only be on the drive with the OS since its hiding in the registry.

i think ill go on newegg tonight and order half of my upgrades now. Ram and a SATA drive(later is a second 7800 and a dual core amd). Now that iTunes works, ill just stick all my music/important **** on that (gotta remember how to unlock these ****ers and turn them into mass storage devices)
