I think that I have some viruses and spyware issues.  I have MacAfee and each
time I run a scan it finds something.  This
just started recently and my computer seems to be running slower.  Today when I started my laptop, I received
the \appdata\roaming\absolute error message that it couldn’t be opened.  I dont know that
is or if that has anything to do with a virus. However, I wanted to get this
issue resolved and get these viruses off my computer.  Can someone assist me on how to remove or
give me some options or direct me somewhere? 
I am somewhat savvy!
