Do you have a system with multiple user profiles (Vista or XP)?  It can be useful to set up a second user profile; I’ve used that to get to otherwise blocked virus killer programs.


 I use a few different virus killers.  One I’ve found to work particularly well is Avira. 


Find Avira here:

The free version is fully functional.

I'm sorry to bother the group with this; but I've picked up a computer virus that I had once before and someone helped me out.  I thought I had saved that mail--but cannot locate.  I've got something a virus that got through the Norton--it disguises itself with a symbol just like Microsoft's security system--and keeps popping up with dire warnings and then trys to get you to purchase protection.....once before someone gave me very specific directions on how to remove.  Can you help again????  "security breach!!!!"  "system danger"

thanks a ton for any help.....right now it is even not allowing me to do google searches...most sincerely  Michelle Horner
