    Have you tried uninstalling the virus program totally and re-installing it?

    Have you looked at your task manager? Check to see if you see the same program running here. Make sure its right program. It will say the name and who is using it and the memory its using. Never delete a program running on syste. Its safe to stop the ones using your name
