    I went to the link you provided, but when I downloaded and ran the start up log it just gave me Gibberish. I tried to paste what it gave me but it would only copy the first line of what it gave me. Any idea what I could have done wrong? I think it is a ZIP file and I do not have WinZip on my home computer, could that make a difference?

    Dinger71, what virus scan software do you have?

    It sounds like your virus definition aren't updated, which is probably why it's telling you there are no viruses detected. Go to the homepage for your virus software and download the latest dats, then run virus scan. Also, the symantec site has great fixes, I find they are easier to run than mcafee's.

    Good luck:)
