Ok, this previouse Friday (December 8) I was gone from my dorm all day, but my roommate need to use a computer so I told him he could use mine. Let's jst say he's not very good with computers, but I didn't see any harm from it. Well, when I got back that night, my computer started acting up. I scanned for virusus but nothing came up. Then, an automated virus scan picked up and deleted to threats, and part of the problem went away. However, it didn't get everything, so after several hours and checking each and every file in my C: drive, I found a new ActiveX Object file that was not there before and was created on December 8. I did not download anything, so whatever got it there was something my roommate did, but let's not go there. Anyway, after finding the file, I was able to delete several parts inside the file, but now there are 5 different parts that I can't get rid of. When I try to delete it, I get the message, "Cannot delete <name of the part>: Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use."
Ok, I really don't know what the file is doing, so I can't tell if it's in use or not. The only things it's doing to my computer is it is popping up windows telling me I have some virus and to download this stuff to get rid of it. I've gotten more then one product it tells me to download, and I personally don't trust any of them. If anyone has any suggestions or can help me out I would GREATLY appreciate it. Thank You.
