    Boot the computer in safe mode and run your virus scan

    Old emachines rarely came with restore discs. And it probably doesn't have a recovery partition.

    You'll probably have to call gateway (they own emachines) and order the recovery discs. You'll have to give them the serial number on the back of the computer.

    Boot from the CD and restore.

    After so much anal entry, your butt was bound to catch a virus at some point.
