The problem is that none of us who help in these newsgroups can see the
"forum" that you do because it isn't a real forum. It's just a web
interface that leeches Usenet newsgroup posts. So I have no idea what the
"steps described above" entail because there *is* no above here. A better
way to access newsgroups is by using a real newsreader. This is very easy
to set up and I'll give you information about that at the end of this post.
If you would still prefer to use a forum, then www.computerhaven.info
warm and friendly place and it is a *real* forum.
For the malware infection, because I have no idea what you've already tried
(because remember there's no "above" here), I'll give you the full answer.
Probably at this point you should go directly to getting guided help, but
that's your choice.

listed at the first link. Register and read its posting FAQ. PLEASE DO NOT
POST LOGS IN THE MS NEWSGROUPS.
B. Usenet newsgroups
Since you are using a web interface, you may not realize that this is really
a newsgroup. You will get far more out of this resource if you learn to use
a newsreader. There are many good newsreaders for Windows, but you can use
Outlook Express (XP) or Windows Mail (Vista) since you already have it.
Here are some links to information about newsgroups:
