Rather Urgent-Email cookies, possible viruses, acting really, really slow

    Hi, me again, some serious, urgent problem. I loooked for an FAQ, but to no avail.

    First my computer stated slowing down really fast, then my computer said some cookies had installed themselves on my computer, I know there was one called Greensreen, and a few more about keyboard strokes. It also said these were disguised as an email, which I did get some suspicious one a few days ago that looked like it was from a cell-phone, so foolishly enough I opened it (because I have a friend who occassionally sends me a essage via cellphone). And sometime after that, some critical level cookies istalled themselves.

    Now, I tried downoading an antivirus, but my computer was so slow it glitched up, and now I can't even open the internet anymore. So, obviously, wondering what I should do here.

    Also, what exactly does a system restore do to a computer, and is it agood choice in this position?

    EDIT-Also I tried using CTR ALT Delte, and it said it is blocked by administrator, and I'm the only one who uses thi computer.

    Um...well it said critical risk tracking cookie. So...I'm not sure about that.

    I don't have antivirus because I'm an idiot. That about sums it up. Downloading one right now, since internet seems OK right now. And Norton doesn't work because you can only install it on so many computers.

    What exactly does a system restore do, though?

    EDIT-Sorry, it was a trojan. What exactly do I do to get rid of that and what is it?

    Well, those tracking cookies, they're still deleted after I delete cookies, right?

    And what about the trojans I have?

    Ok, ok, good to know. But, again, apparantly I have some trojans that say they'll keep keystrokes and save sreen images? These aren't the cookies your talking about are they? The one's you said are harmless? If they are harmless, I'd still like to get rid of them, and if they're harmful, what can I do?

    Yeah, I know nothing. Sorry.
