I always get pop-ups on my computer system warning me of a virus called Brontok, what is the best anti-virus which I can use to remove it from my computer because I can no longer access some files in my system?

Start with checking for malware causes to your problem. Install Super Antspyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds. Run the online scan for BitDefender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds. Once the computer has been scanned, download the following program: McAfee AVERT Stinger This program will scan your computer for the most common worms, trojans, and viruses that are currently in the wild. Instructions for using this program can be found on the McAfee stinger page. Be sure to put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean, have it delete it or make a note of the file location, so you can delete it yourself. After you have done this and no success, please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log."
