I have a bit coin virus on my PC, which Microsoft Security found and I delete the processes and .exe files which they run under.
New ones just keep showing up whenever i9 start up my PC. I do not have the best knowledge of computers so please try to keep replies simple :)
I run win7 64bit.

Thanks in advance.

See if this helps (http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/protect/forum/mse-protect_scanning/bitcoin-mining-software-detected-by-mse-reappears/7300ea17-f2e8-4e80-b29f-e7798db039b6?msgId=105851eb-a6c1-4d47-8c6c-a511e8e6a8c9)

Get ccleaner to remove the temp files etc (http://www.ccleaner.com) where it says advanced in the install select it then if it wants to install Chrome or something by Google, untick it, you dont need it

Do you have skype?? You could get teamviewer then send the ID and password to me in a PM. But you need 10 posts first to do it. And I could have a look

Dont have steam, do you have skype?? I sent a message to someone on skype with the same name youre using in here. All I need is the ID and password, if you install teamviewer.
