    Umm... yea, I ran my anti-virus program (panada anti-virus scan) and it picked up on a virus. I cleaned it and I know its still there. Everytime i restart my computer I cannot access the internet. Fortunalty I know of the program it is called so I can close it and access the internet. Can anyone help me get rid of this virus? I've tried several different anti-virus programs.

    Will give you a procedure to fix it yourself to keep it from being re-infected.
    [1] Download, install and run Webroots, Spysweeper
    [2] Download. install and run Firefox 1.0 Browser.
    [3] Get yourself a good virus program like Avast Anti-Virus which automatically updates its program and definitions.
    [2 and 3] are free programs, Spysweeper, which has won numberous
    awards is well worth the money. http://www.webroot.com/
    http://www.mozilla.org/

    Don't you mean Spybot v1.3?
