Ben, are you sure you have cleaned your pc because one of the most common things a virus will do is to block antivirus sites in an effort to stop you cleaning up.

i tried all methods, and it was a few reg keys that were left over, but i had ports open left right and center, which would mean that dial up connection box was appearing every sec, but i needed a clean install anyways so thats what i did. all your methods work well and did the job so ill keep these notes handy!, Btw does anyone know whats the best graphics card i can get that plays "most Games" like doom 3 or HL2 for example? my budget ranges from £50-£100.


thanks

According to PCPro the best in your price bracket as of September last year was the Connect3D Radeon 9600 click here
click here for the full list. I don't have one so can't vouch for it and there may be something newer on the shelves by now.

You may want to read & follow Symantec's recommendations to lessen the chances of getting infected again. Go to click here - scroll down to 'recommendations' somewhere in the middle of the page.

Just install AVG Antivirus free version. It takes care of just about everything. on top of that get Blackice Defender firewall. Between the two of them you are very well protected.
