I loaded all three software programs and I found about 35 things embedded in my system. Thanks for the tip.

Norton Internet 2006. It kills all sorts of aggervating things (Virus, email protection, spam blocker, spyware etc etc). I have had it on my system for a year and its stopped several attempts of hijacking and trojans. Some may say it blocks too much, but you can add the good things as "allowed" and it remembers the good from the bad.

Only 35? I ran AntiVir and had ~350 files with worms, Trojan Horses or remnants of them. Quaranteened them and no more denial of service, etc. My Norton was old and not up-to-date but I had been using Spybot and AdAware.

If you have any really persistant stuff that just won't leave, run the scans in Safe Mode- they can't hide then.

I run Norton all the time and it updates every night. Hopefully, I have not been hit (badly).

got a little quirky thing going on with a neighbor's computer.....
I had installed AVG on her machine last year.

first of all, she PREFERS to run win98:rolleyes:

but she called me the other night, said she could only get to her saved emails from 2001, her yahoo messenger didn't work, and her AVG was not on radar anymore. Also missing a few other programs here and there.

3 files from old Norton & Symantec were missing or corrupted... took care of that in the registry
Well, first thing I tried was updating AVG to know where that stood. it wasn't running as a TSR, so I went into programs and tried starting it, it told me it wasn't installed.....although I had personally seen it run during POST:(

tried to update AVG, it said I couldn't. Also nixed the idea of downloading the newest version as she's on dial-up and it's 31 mb

tried to restore back to an earlier date in DOS, it came back with 4 other dates that I could use....... 3/14/15, 3/15/15/, 3/16/15 & 10/24/06

well, did some poking around and found her outlook express folders.... and they too were dated for 1915!:eek3:


she refuses XP, as she uses them at work, and prefers her ol' Win98:mad:

Time for her to get with the program since MS isn't supporting 98 now and if she doesn't have 98SE, she's even more behind the 8 ball.
