    I've used that also. A good one.

    I tried two different ones. It'd scan but it wouldn't let me remove the files. Anybody know a program that will let me remove them?

    Thanks Josdin

    Well I say you're in luck my friend.

    Go here: http://forums.majorgeeks.com/forumdisplay.php?s=b1d0ad77657c4d8f7b61b9685ccb146 3&f=35


    Read the: READ & RUN ME FIRST Before Asking for Support Thread, Follow the instructions carefully and do EVERY step. They have a strict rule about it, If you still feel unsure or having problems. Read the part on how to post.

    These people are very skilled at removing Malware give em a chance.

    If you want my opinion get rid of NAV it's bloatware.

    Go with Avast! 4.6 AntiVirus and
    Kerio personal Firewall.

    They are both free and very effective.

    100% agreed. Spybot is the best I have seen and have tried many out there to clean up. Then Trend has PC Chillin' ... like $25 a year, but WELL worth it. Has automatic updates instead of going out for patches, etc. ... it handles them all for ya.

    Re: Computer Help

    Ok, I know that I may be in the minority here. But, I do not run a anti-virus program. I rely on my firewall and I scan my system with Spybot a few times a week. Sure, I have had some Spyware. But for the past 2 years I have never had anything harmful. Anti virus slows me down way too much.

    I had Ad Aware and hated it. It sucks. Get Spybot, its free and rocks!

    Ultra,

    Not running an AV is dangerous. Spybot is a little overrated it cannot catch the things that can be very harmful.

    Go here http://www.ewido.net/en/
    And run the free scan real quick.

    (I am a Computer Tech and software consultant) Just incase you're wondering =P
