    I just did a bitdefender scan and found 2 viruses:

    BehavesLike:Win32.FileInfector

    Trojan.Downloader.Java.Openconnection.AJ

    ...but bitdefender could not remove either i want to know if I can remove these another way.

    PS: Norton, and Mcaffe did'nt find either of these

    Empty the Norton AntiVirus Quarantine.
    The other can be removed by disabling/re-enabling System Restore.

    To turn off System Restore:

    On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
    Click Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    Check Turn off System Restore.
    Click Apply, and then click OK.

    Restart your computer.

    To turn System Restore back on and create a restore point.

    To create a restore point:

    Single-click Start and point to All Programs.
    Mouse over Accessories, then System Tools, and select System Restore.
    In the System Restore wizard, select the box next the text labeled "Create a restore point" and click the Next button.
    Type a description for your new restore point. Something like "After trojan/spyware cleanup". Click Create and you're done.

    ok so your saying all I have to do is turn off the system restore and turn it back on then its all better?

    If you turn it off, then just rerun your anti-virus program. Have it clean, quarantine, or delete anything it finds. Then turn System Restore back on.
