I decided to make an official virus scanner thread so people would stop making threads like "HeLp KeLlOgGeR!!!" Or "ViRuS!!!Ã¢â‚¬Â So if anyone needs help removing a virus they can come to this thread and seek help from others.
In addition I was thinking we could make a virus scanner list so if someone needs to know some names of good virus scanners they can run through the list and find some they like.
WARNING: Never get Norton Anti-Virus. It sticks on to your computer. The only thing I have succesfully removed it with is MoveOnBoot.
