3 friends computers, all running avg6/a2/spybot/adaware, all up to date, have an apparent virus which takes out media, so far windows media player, win dvd, and nero's ability to work with dvd shrink.

On reinstalling windows media 9 it now works but neither win dvd4 nor nero 6303 is working even after reinstalling.

There is a virus called Wallon doing the rounds, but that only goes for WMP as far as I know, and if you are up to dates with your patches you should be ok.
