Best free anti-virus software I have come across would have to be Avast!
It blocks viruses from getting onto your computer in the first place, and easily detects and removes any existing ones. Since using it, there have been many viruses trying to get onto my computer, but Avast has blocked every single one. It even got rid of the existing virus I was stuck with. Here is a link to Avast's homepage, don't worry if your "license" expires, it will still be free for you to use. Trust me, you will thank me. :]

Anytime, I personally know how you feel with the virus issue, I was the same way haha. I was forced to do a full HD wipe and re-install... An unneeded task; I wouldn't want anyone else to have to do that :]

 Yeah, but why waste the money to do that, when you can format it for free? I understand if you lack technical prowess, but a quick Google can teach you pretty easily.

if you are a semi-geek you could boot off of a flash drive/floppy/cd and delete it that way, thats what they do at computer places

There are ways to remove them, but there's not guarantee that it's gone. If you have a virus, back up your data and reinstall. Next time, use and antivirus, keep your computer updated and exercise responsibility.
