I think my computer has malware on it. My old computer had malware and it was so bad I had to stop using it and now I think the same virus has entered my current computer (and I don't know why this is happening I don't access dodgy sites at all). I have asked my dad kindly if he could get me a new one so I can do my uni work but I don't think that is happening until next year. Anyway I have a 2 hour 30 min test that opens on Wednesday and closes on Friday and an assignment due on Friday which I was working on before it crashed and I won't be able to access them. Now it says 'detail gateway unavailable' and I had two virus softwares that have somehow uninstalled themselves and I'm really stressing out because my dad is probably going to blame me when I don't know why this keeps happening and I really need to submit my work due and London's probably going into tier 3 on Wednesday and my uni is in another city so I'm basically ****** any idea of how I can get through this??

Can you still get into your computer? If so, re-install your anti-virus software and run a check of the computer. It should be able to identify if there is anything there, and will attempt to remove it. Always keep copies of your Uni work on a removeable drive (don't leave it plugged into your computer - just plug it in when doing a backup), that way you won't lose any work if it it Malware. Take care and stay safe.

Could you work on the test on a computer elsewhere e.g. school, library? I think your teacher/professor would understand your failure to submit your assignment due to malware, and I assume you can't have any cheat sheets during the test so you wouldn't need your own computer for the test anyway.
