Just find an ALT in your area who knows more about computers than you do. Anybody with half a brain and a bit of experience with a computer can handle something like this, so find somebody smarter than you and ask them for help.
You might be surprised at how few people out there have this kind of knowledge. Ever wonder why Macs are so popular?
OP, Google "antivirus program", pick one, install it, and run the thing. Also, stop clicking on links advertising free porn/valium/other crap you should know better than to try your luck with.
