A virus is causing my pc to restart and I cant get rid of it

ok just to let you know, I DID NOT DO ANYTHING THAT MADE THIS HAPPENED!!!

My pc just straight got infected with with trojans,..... I dont how!! and I have tried the following removal tools

AVG
Ad Aware
Spybot search and destroy
Microsoft Anti Spyware Beta

I have got rid of some trojans, but my pc is still infected for some reason, because I can tell at the bottom of my
taskbar showing a red X saying my computer is infected.

Also, everytime when my computer gets ready to load up in the desktop, it keeps restarting after every 5 seconds!!
and I can assure you its not a hardware issue or anything else!!, except a VIRUS!!

anybody knows how to fix this?, a good program or something?

Sorry to hear that bro.

1. Download and install the trial version of Ewido Anti-Malaware: http://www.ewido.net/en/product/
2. then run the latest updates for it
3. make sure you have the latest updates for the other apps you mention above.
4. reboot PC and press F8 or any key that boots up to choose SafeMode on your PC. Boot up in SafeMode.
5. Then run a full scan with Ewido. Delete anything it finds.
6. Then run a full scan with the other products you have. This will eventually log or delete your trojans.
7. be sure to note what if finds to be able to do searches on the net to be able to fully protect your PC from more attempts.
8. reboot your PC as normal to see if it helped. I would advice to get a better anti-virus program than AVI.

Let me now how it goes?

We can't tell you that ;). Just type full version zone alarm or something in google. Make sure you don't open any dodgy stuff though. That could be how you got infected in the first place.
