This morning, I ran SpyHunter as usual but it did take quite some time to get the game run. When finally I got it, it stuck often and I was unable to play it as I used to do. I don’t know what was wrong with my computer but I am sure I never go to any dangerous or unsafe websites as many people say that is the mostly likely way to get infected with computer viruses. I think it is impossible for me to get any viruses on my computer as I have a rather good habit in using my pc and seldom use it to do other things that is unsafe such as go online for some videos, talking to strangers via some programs. But since I felt my pc is not normally working I could not analyze what is indeed wrong with my computer. I have a scan by MSE and it stated that I had many files that are infected with a virus called Worm:JS/Proslikefan.gen!inf in my pc which I thought was not possible but I had nothing to do but believe this fact. I tried to remove those files but failed. And it seems to be no other quick way to get it off. Can anyone give me some advice?
