I have a virus known as the "WinPC Defender" virus on my log in for windows XP. I also believe a poster from here cough*Twisted Intestine*cough sent it to me.

Cowboy #'s has tried to help, but for some reason the program he reccomanded isn't working. Can anyone else help?

You need to buy a new PC. That's what I did.

I don't think thats an option. Plus I have 2 computers(including the one with the virus) and 3 lap tops.

Plus this computer is perfectly fine with the other log in's aside from mine.

Well, I suggest using something called "Safe Mode" when using a program to remove it. Apparently me not doing this is why my previous PC got destroyed.

Tried it, it didn't work.

Anytime a white Ontario man is blamed of a hate crime, it is my business.

I don't rememeber what virus I had exactly, but it was the one that kept demanding you do a virus scan or download some patch or something, then causes havoc with your e-mail, then your wallpaper is changed. I removed a lot of it via Norton, but it ended up deleting key operational files and removing my internet connection. The whole thing became unusable - I'm sure it could have been fixed, but it was an excuse to get a better PC so whatever.

I had a virus that kept bringing up popups saying to download some anti-virus program. I got a program called "malaware" or something like that and it took care of it.

I finally changed this.

I am curious about this accusation as well.

Mind your own business.

I recommend removing the accusation from the first post if it's still possible to edit it or you'll probably continue to get inquiries from time to time, it's only a suggestion though. GL with the virus removal, I personally use AVG free and safe mode when needed.

lol, I really couldn't remember what it was called, and it was on my old computer.

*Gives people viruses and then shady instructions on how to get rid of them*

Thanks though! I'm going to download that now.
