Hey 2OG, thanks again for all of your help in this - I really, really appreciate it. I do have a couple of questions for you, if you don't mind taking the time to explain a few things. I guess the first would be, what, if any, of the various programs that I downloaded to remove the virus should I maybe keep active on my CPU? I've still got HJT, SUPERAntiSpyware, and ATF-Cleaner, and then I downloaded the programs that you recommended in your last post as well: Comodo Free, SpywareBlaster, Spyad, and the MVPS Hosts file. I'm not too sure what to do with/if I read correctly and downloaded the proper Spyad and MVPS Hosts file, and working with third party firewalls is also foreign to me, so any instructions there would be great. From what I read on the sites offering them, I couldn't quite make out how to use them effectively, or if I was going to need the ZonedOut program as well. Also, on my CPU I currently have AVG Free 8.0, Windows Defender, Lavasoft Ad-Aware SE Personal, and Spybot - Search and Destroy - What of these, if any, should I keep, again keeping in mind the several new ones that you had me download? There are so many programs!!! Thanks much, 2OG, and I look forward to your response! Walt P.S. I don't quite understand the S.I.M.C. list. I get what you're saying, but is this just some list that you keep with you? (ie, It's not actuully on the posts? You had me looking for some sort of reference that was part of your posts, listing me as being S.I.M.C.) In any case,thank you for telling me that I'm not an idiot. ::laughing:: Cheers! P.P.S. You wouldn' happen to know how to best fix an apparently broken g key on a Gateway MX6437 Notebook keyboard, would you? My hardware knowledge is unfortunately even more sorely limited than that of my software... Thanks again!
