I was just browsing the web for music video codes...and all of a sudden I clicked this site or something, there were a million pop-ups (and we do have a pop-up blocker...so obviously it must be a lousey one) and then McAfee alert popped up saying that a virus was found, but deleted. Then two seconds later after I clicked "continue what I was doing" MacAfee popped up again and said that a Trojan was found and could not be deleted and then it had me run a virus scan (which is still running right now). The Trojan name is: Downloader-AAI. It won't let me delete it or clean it, because when I try to it says: the file pcs_0031 cannot be deleted (((or cleaned if that's the option I'm trying to do))), verify that the file is not write-protected and try again.

I am stumped (but I am also horrible with computers) and my mum will be getting home in less than an hour...If I can't delete it, then I'll obviously tell her, but she is going to be wicked upset because she always scolds me and tells me not to download stuff on her computer (I use my laptop) and I wasn't even downloading anything...but I don't know if she'll really believe me. She's even worse with computers than me, so every little thing that goes wrong with this thing makes my parents upset.

So, sorry for rambling a little, I should get to the point. Can any of you please help me!? Is it possible?

Thank you so much!!!!!!!!

I followed the steps, and after restarting the computer I'm doing another virus scan. So far so good. I am so glad you gave me that link!!!

Well, now I can finally start my pile of homework and studying which if I had done in the first place, I wouldn't even have been in this situation, LOL.

Thank you again very very much!

Ugh, viruses are evil! My teacher last year had some virus called edmond.exe that I had to keep doing battle with. It was annoying.
