Default HelP!!

I am in the process of looking for a new computer, I have operating system ME and it is about 5 or 6 years old. I did not renew a virus program.....I KNOW BIG MISTAKE!!!......and now, I am having all sorts of problems and I gather it is a virus??

The BIG problem is that I cannot download ANY free virus programs to even scan to see if there is a problem with one.....Trendmicro says I need to update Java, but then I get a message about updating Active X...but that isn't possible I tried AVG and it never starts to download that program.......

Any suggestions?

In this situation it may be best to place your harddrive into another computer which has such software installed and perform the tasks with your drive as a storage or slave drive. Otherwise a formatting may be in your future.

As William said I would recommend formatting as well. You don't want to spread those viruses around. Also welcome to the forums. We are glad to have you.
