My win XP has Ad-Aware, Windows Defender and AVGAS installed and neither will complete a full system scan. Spybot seems OK. However Ad-Aware 2007 has noted the presence of host files with 222.89.98.219 address and I think this is a worm. If so, any ideas to get rid of it? Thanks.

p.s. I'd switch off your Messenger in the meantime till you clear it.

Thanks, Karakorum, I'll give it a go.
