    I found an free "AntiFunLove" program while searching for removal tools on bitdefender.com. This seems like a good plan? I saved the program, but have not ran it yet. I would like a second opinion please or just an "ok, good idea, run it" or a "no wait, you should do this instead" or something.

    Thanks again.

    Thank you. I am checking out that downloadable anti-virus right now.

    But that second link about the funlove virus mentioned only the "funlove.4099" not the "funlove.4096". I have successfully got rid of the .4099! :D But the .4096 remains. :(

    Thanks for the links and the help! I hope that AVG download helps!

    doing a search for funlove, the only av that distiguishes between 4099 & 4096 is panda software. All the others seem to lump them together.

    To be honest if symantec only mention 4099 then 4096 must be removed with the symantec removal tool.

    Despite the fact that I dislike Norton AV supplied by symantec as a product, their virus information is second to none and I am always guided by them. THeir stand alone removal products always seem to work well. It's just their main AV I dislike as it interferes with my computer too much

    Well, I downloaded that AVG Anti-Virus and did a scan. It found and repaired 72 infected programs/files/etc.

    It's fixed. :D

    Thank you so much tpd, dvk01, and Derek for the help!

    Hi JR

    Glad it worked, it's a free software and a good anti virus, but it only works if it's kept updated.

    It's essential to update any AV as frequently as possible, AVG tend to have weekly updates but do have more frequent when the nasties are about
