my PC has been affected by virus. This is my guess only. I have 80 GB hard disk and 1 Gb RAM. It’s a Pentium processor. I have five partitions in total including C drive. I had huge data in all the drives. Almost all the drives were full. Sad thing is after the recent restart, I am just seeing all drives as empty. Size and free space both are same. I can open the drives too. Even if I search some files, the results are not appearing. C drive is intact and all the documents too. I am very much worried. Can anybody please help? I cannot afford to lose the data. It’s simply precious with all the photos and other documents of decade period.

I normally use Google chrome as my browser and whenever I open it, the desktop icons begin flickering for a while before they return to regular. I have tried to restart my computer severally and when I do, I see there is a processes still running but then it closes quickly. I use AVG antivirus but it has not so far detected anything. Could this be a virus? How can I eliminate it without losing my data?

I think I picked up a nasty  virus called Ads by Positive Finds. It is stealing my data. Plus freezing up my whole system. I have tried every program but nothing is getting rid of it. Do I need to wipe my system clean or is there a way to get rid of this?
