Serious Virus Repair
Virus repair is a serious business. Irrespective of whether you're running Windows 9X, XP or Vista it's highly probable that your laptop has malware on it.

Some of these symptoms can also be the result of hardware and housekeeping issues so before locking into a virus repair mission, check that these conditions don't apply:
If the symptoms still persist a virus or some other form of malware has almost certainly taken up residence.
There is more to exhaustive and successful virus repair than simply running an antivirus scanner. A regular scan with an antivirus tool will pick up low hanging fruit, but invariably there will be smarter and potentially more damaging critters left undetected in crevices and under rocks. They will emerge from time to time or when the risk of exposure is lower.
If that sounds incredible just note that virus developers have been refining their art for over 25 years. They have mastered skills that enable them to not only make their products nearly undetectable, but to also sense the circumstances when the risk of exposure is greatest.
Antivirus products vary in their ability to pick up concealed viruses and so it's not uncommon to run scans on a PC with different products and find that one detects a virus that another couldn't. That doesn't prove that one product is better than another, they all have blind spots.
The trick to achieving a successful virus repair is to present the scanning tools with the optimum conditions for exposing as many types of malware as possible, whether virus, spyware, adware or whatever.What is malware?

Antivirus software has a cost and a overhead, but so does malware. The immediate problems and inconvenience caused by a virus are typically the tip of the iceberg.
Surf The Internet At Work?
Windows and other software programs store history about the different activities that you have performed on your computer and on the Internet. This information is stored in the system areas of your hard disk and the built-in Windows functions like 'Clear History' offer little protection as they can only partially delete this data. Anyone can take a look at your history and find out what you have been doing on your computer, and this raises serious privacy concerns.
