  • I know this... it's really terrible. We can't possibly tell you which virus it is because there are literally tens of thousands of computer viruses out there. Some are just annoying but harmless, other are extremely dangerous because they can hack pretty much any password or information you have on your computer (including electronic banking, your webcam if you have a macbook etc.). There are also worms and trojan horses. As was suggested already, you can google the virus and try to fix it yourself but if you're not particularly talented at fixing computers like myself, I recommend you to give your computer to someone who knows about this stuff (friends or family) or, if you don't have anyone, bring it to a professional computer guy who gets rid of it for you. Fixing it yourself can be tricky because if you don't know exactly what you're doing, you might end up creating more damage than you already have...

  • Normally, I use the control panel to check out all the software on my computer, but if u don't know what you are doing, then it could hurt your computer even more. I would recommend malwarebytes.

  • Install malwarebytes, restart PC, run in safe mode and scan with the anti-virus program.

  • Dip it in water, H2O is said to absorb viruses.
