    hi, yes, i recently read a rather long report from the nice people over at Sophos about "fake anti-virus" stuff. I wanted to know how many instances of "Rundll32.exe" should be running on my winXP gaming computer?

    Currently, I have 2 instances of it running and if i google it i get sent to a page that i believe was included in the Sophos report as being one of the pages that i could get violated.

    Please advise how is the best way to stay ahead of the Fake anti-virus junk.
