Thanks Floozy. And yes, I'm as stubborn and willful as anybody I ever met. If it could be fixed on will alone, the virus would have seen me and ran off scared. Not sure if there's any virus left now, or whether it's just a screwed registry file. Gonna keep running 2 or 3 scans a day and see if i can figure out a way to rectify it. Hmm, just had a thought...where did i leave them instructions on using regedit?

Try Alwil's Avast (the free (home) edition is perfect) for a virusscanner and CCleaner to fix your registry (provides back-up of it beforehand). Related to the last one is Defraggler, also a nice tool (to defragment disks :P). My basic set of utilities :)

now that you have it clean.... you need to run a Root Kit scanner on it......
alot of the fake antiviruses out there leave behind a small piece. if that is the case, you may still be infected..... try     http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
it is a free online scanner.... (just to be safe)

welcome back....
