    I've been using winxp for several yrs and have taught myself all I know to date. During the process I have collected plenty of ad/spyware. I bought the nort. int. secerity download but it doesn't remove these. When I've searched for instructions to uninstall they make it sound like I'm going to loose all sorts of important info. Am I just being a "chicken"??!!!
    I also get the message pop-up re: msiefr40.dll when I boot my comp. It's currently in my quarantine folder. Can you please save me from some of this technology maddness?
