For some reason all of a sudden when I'm exploring any site at random all of a sudden 50,000 windows open of all different types of porn, IT'S REALLY GROSS. Anyway after I close all that crap it says Trojan something, I was wondering what I can do to get rid of this as I have no idea how i got it.

Also, whenever I start up my computer this window with thousands of files called System 32 appears, also whenever I restart my computer and I get rid of Quick Launch and Search Assitant it comes back!

Yes, I do run a virus scan, yet it never seems to do anything. It runs it then it says it's removed it but then like 30 minutes letter I keep getting these warnings that the same Virus is there and it can't do anything about it :confused:

And besides that symantec (or whatever you just posted) makes me use Internet Explorer but it's SO slow when I try and use it.

Don't really know how you can get rid of this since I rarely use windows. But here is a suggestion:
1) Before you connect to the internet, close all windows and programs. Then, open the window that lets you see all the programs/processes runnning on your computer. ctrl+alt+delete will most probably open up this window.
2) Study all the names of the programs in this window.
3) Connect to the internet.
4) See what other new programs are running in the window you opened at (1)
5) Most of those new process names can easily be matched with the programs you are running and know about. Try to get a suspicious one and research about it.
6) If that is the program that is creating all the problems, find a way of uninstalling it.

That is a basic way of logically isolating problematic programs in other operating systems, but what is logic in Windows os?

That won't work because I have high-speed, meaning that I'm always connected to the internet.

Sometimes it's just easier to format the drive and start over again

reformating is a bitch, and if you don't know how to do it i wouldn't do it if i were you. Have you tried running ad aware and spybot first. If not use that and see what spy ware you have running.

A few bad clicks here and there can seriously fuck you up. You probably have a ton of viruses and SpyWare. Download Adaware and Spybot to get rid of it.

Also, don't use Internet Explorer. It sucks. Get a browser like Firefox...
