    I recently had Best Buy Geeksquad run a scan and very few viruses, but Look2me virus showed up on scan. He said that virus will cause more problems. He said that it needs a "Advanced Removal" which will cost $200 and will cost $300 for "Advanced Removal with Prevention." Internet continues to get hung up, very slow when it does connect to various websites. Some websites connect quickly, some never connect. For example, MSN website is slow. Yahoo websites are much quicker to connect. Attached is my hijack this log. Please let me know what I can do without paying the Geeksquad. P.S. I tried to restore to factory with recovery disks and it says "Recovery disks not compatible with this Operating System." Geeksquad said that it's the virus and even mentioned something about the virus changing my key code of my computer.
