    yesterday I downloaded an virus that I can't remove, I went to "uninstall a program" and i removed it there and it is still in effect. It won't let me open some apps. I was forced to restore to a previous date, but when ever it's in progress, it automatically stops, and closes the window.I really need help, as I just got this computer, and it isn't allowing me to open something that I use that has money on it.
