Just wanted to thank all those who gave me advice last week (I think it was last week) on how to get rid of some malware and other viruses on my desktop. I hadn't really had time to mess with it until today and low and behold they're all history! I had to download the software to a flashdrive from another computer to get the job done, but it wasn't nearly has difficult as I'd made it out to be (in my head).

I feel like wonderwoman now! lol Just in time too as my laptop has to go back to the people I borrowed it from.

Anyhoo, just wanted to say a big thank ya!

I used malwarebytes.org to start, which completely removed the Virus Remover 2008, at which point I was finally able to use Norton antivirus to take care of the Trojan virus that remained. Then I discovered that my Windows Automatic Updater was turned off. I don't know at what point that happened, but I went back into the system and turned it back on. Now my PC is happy again and so am I!

Here was my original thread on this topic: http://www.wahm.com/forum/forum_post...=635709&KW=
