i f i remember the name right...and i should...i'm getting showered with it lately..AVG is spotting it and cleaning it up..allegedly..but this morning it got in without my having opened any apps..i.e. outlook or ie.
is it being dealt with properly or is there hole in my system somewhere.?

I take it the os is win xp. If that is the case probably in your system restore files.

yes ;;just looked at avg history and correct on both counts...what's the score now people?

I had that one too. Disable system restore, reboot and restart system restore. That will get rid of it.

Right click My computer,click on properties.select the system restore tab and check the turn off system restore box.

Re-start your PC and do as above again only this time remove the tick from the turn off system restore box.
