questions for computer geeks...

I pray that this site is free from viruses and the like, but I have a question. What program is good to get rid of trojans and other viruses? Apparently, my computer is so infected that yahoo has suspended my account several times for unusual activity. I currently use avast, and when I did a scan yesterday, three trojans were picked up.

I have several programs backed up to my external hd. If I were to reformat my computer, would I be able to reinstall these programs from my external hard drive? One of them is paid, and I downloaded it to the hard drive to start with.

  • Go to They have a free or paid anti virus... I use the free one... It has many different things to help you... In-fact it pops right up when the page is a threat and tells me not to use that web page....
