I have had the playsushi virus infecting my computer for an indefinite amount of time (at least a month) from an unknown source and have been reluctant to deal with it due to my utter lack of computer skills. Initial symptoms included my spyware going crazyy, informing me that there was harmfull materal on page I know contain no such thing, and I've read about others experiencing this symptom as well. However, it has recently begun to expand, and is now incorporating vibrant ads. After doing some snooping I have learned it is extremely hard to fully dispose of this particular virus, and thus I request help. To complicate matters, my spyware has recently expired, and I have yet to continue my subscription. Is there any suggestions? (Note: As stated before I have absolutely no knowledge of texhnical computer terms, so simplistic instructions would be apreciated.)
