    So.. I have seemed to somehow gotten a virus on my computer.. I just locked down and ran a virus scan, it detected it and said it quarantined it. I restarted my computer and it runs like normal except when I go to view my folders it clears the screen.. and I keep getting a pop up saying i have a virus and it could harm my computer. Anyone know what to do? Thanks!

    What is the exact name of the virus?

    What anti-virus program did you scan with?

    It didn't tell me the name of the virus.. but I ran a McAfee scan, which is up to date, just updated last night.
