Virus Attacks

When December 2009 came, I have been experiencing computer virus attacks. I don’t know where I got it but I am sure that one of the downloaded files my husband caused it. I tried to restore my computer several times but still I am getting those virus alerts.

One of my friends online told me to install a personal firewall since having an antivirus is not enough. She said an antivirus and a personal firewall software is needed to get the best computer protection. So I heeded her advice and installed a personal firewall software since I have an antivirus already (which I thought is very reliable).

After I installed the personal firewall software, I experienced several days of virus alert free computing then it came back. I always get this Trojan alerts that are found in several svchost.exe in my Temp folder. I don’t know if this is a valid file or not but as I searched Google, it said that a Windows program needed several svchost.exe to run several of its programs. So, shall I delete it or not? That is the mind bugling question I have.

Anyway, I am planning to have a computer repair as an option. I have no choice but to bring in my CPU to a computer doctor to have it repaired. I think I needed more than a software to get rid of it. Maybe I need a computer reformatting to make sure all the viruses are dead! Aside from that, I think my personal computer needs some pampering. It’s been serving me almost 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. So I guess it needs a general computer repair and pampering for it to function properly. It’s hard to lose a computer for a few days because of my work online, but it’s hard to lose my computer permanently since my bread and butter is found online.

So, what do you think? Should I get more than these software and get my PC some repair and pampering?
