Virus

I have a virus from a mixtape disc that I ripped. Is there a way that I can find a service that will learn what the specific virus is and how to disinfect my hard drives if I give them the disc?

Mixtape you say. There's almost no way to get viruses from audio files.
Anyway, what makes you think you got a virus? If your anti-virus software caught it you would already know the name and type.

I strongly guess, it cant be a virus, but i've heard about getting rootkits from audio discs, also if the disc came with autorun software, it could be a virus... Try using a online antivirus or just install Kaspersky 2009 Internet Security/Antivirus and then diagnosing and removing the virus.

But, What exact problems are you facing?

Hewlett Packard tech support had me convinced it was a virus. It turned out to be that Skype is incompatible with other software on my laptop. I don't know what it is incompatible with, but it degrades the performance of both Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Fortunately, Skype did not know how to ruin the performance of Google Chrome or Safari for Windows. I have finally gotten my computer back to good health after about six weeks of problems including swapping out drives, reformatting drives, reimaging drives and the like.
