I ran a file I shouldn't have...

Unread postby sagybp » November 16th, 2009, 10:54 am

I ran a file I shouldn't have and I got infected with the CTV*****.exe virus. It keeps opening ieplorer.exe processes that slow down the computer and I get a lot of messages about infected files from my AVG. The files keep on showing up, even if I delete them.

Can anyone please help?
