 Koobface comp. virus.  It came in facebook and was from a "friend" in my list but was really a virus.  I have tried everything I know, please help!!!!

 

~~~ Ok, so I run MajorGeeks.com and then it tells me that I need a newer version of windows to use it.  I have a OLD windows operating systime Windows ME (Millinium edition)  How do I upgrade that and can I do that online?

go to majorgeeks.com

go into the forums and go to the tab that is something about Malware...

then there will be a section that says "Read Me and Run Me First"

do everything it says and your comp will be clean and running perfectly

It is going to cost you at least a couple of hundred bucks to get a new OS.  Almost everything is going to require XP or Vista.  I remember ME, it was my favorite OS...but nothing is made for ME anymore.

Great, I will try that.  Can you ask him if/how I can upgrade to a newer version of windows without it costing a lot.  Please.

I will try to see if I can. He works nights so it is hard to get in touch with him... .. If you know someone who has bought an upgrade, you can barrow their cd.. Have you tried looking on e-bay for them? also you can shop around at like salvation army. You never know you might find one in there. I have seen them in there before..
