    The title says it all. I followed the suggestions found in the forum. I appreciate the efforts and good work. Donation to follow.

    I tried to locate the NOIDE entry by going down the following folder branch:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CURRENTCONTROLSET > SERVICES > VXD > IOS

    There isn't a noide entry. I'm using xp. I've been using AVG for a while with no problem. I recently put in Norton AV 2004. I updated quickly as possible. All hell broke loose. Two other computers, one win95 and one 98se, were only briefly networked to my peer "server." A virus/worm must be the problem if 3 computers took a hit.

    Egad, I'm outraged, exasperated. I've been using the web for 8 years. What is this onslaught?
