  1. I am in desperate need of a virus clean up on my computer. My computer was recently infected with a Malware virus - On my toolbar there are two symbols (a yellow triangle with a "!" and a red circle with a "X") claiming that I have been infected and to download the latest anti virus software. Can somebody take me through the steps on how I could remove these from my computer?? Any help is appreciated!

    dowenload malwarebytes, its free. Update after download, then run a full system scan. This could probably solve your problem.
