I don’t remember since when my PC acted so weirdly, my antivirus program detection report told me that my computer was infected by a Trojan horse named Win32.Unruy.Gen1. I’m not sure if that’s the main reason that my computer had trapped in a poor performance, my computer runs very slow each time I start or restart my computer, and many of my original program like WORD, EXCEL won’t work anymore. I’m so upset, I did not do anything to my computer, what’s worse, the antivirus program can’t help me solve the problem, I think I will have to fix it in a shop, but before, I think it’s not a bad idea to ask help from intern first, could anybody can help me get out of this trouble, please help!
