    OK. So my brother got my computer infected, I believe he downloaded a game, and it came with it.
    So what happened is that my computer gets pop ups saying I have a virus/spyware, and a Vista anti-virus opens up (I dont use vista), so I didn't click anything, instead I closed everything. There were new shortcuts on the desktop, so I deleted their original folder they were in, aswell as the short cuts. However, still getting pop ups, when i try to run my virus scanner, (zone labs), it doesnt respond. I cannot ctrl-alt-delete , because it says that the administrator disabled that function (i am the admin on my computer).

    any ideas, tips?

    thanks

    PS Also, my brother mounted the game on a drive, and i cannot unmount it.
