Buy some anti-virus software.....EVERY PC should have Anti-Virus software these days. It'* well worth the $20 or $30 or whatever they charge for it.

Some good ones are Symantec Norton Anti-Virus and McAfee Anti-Virus......

Ive tried all those they couldnt find it, it must be pretty new.

Anyways I went into all the options and it was set as an operating file, so I uncovered them all, ONTOP of the show all files already selected and I went through all the windows folders and I found it in system32. I renamed it, rebooted, and then deleted it.

Thanks tho
