hmm, problem being that these windows will not open either. or at least they won't stay open long enough.

Sorry...bit slow there. Can't you download anything or run anything online?

managed to get ad-aware downloaded and running but none of the others./ its identified something. so fingers crossed...

I followed BRYNIT's link and was in the process of downloading when Avast! dtected a virus. WIN32.Kuang2.

Did a full virus check and nothing found.

Checked the Avast! site and find it's OK, it actually picked up a Panda Definition as a virus.

Pretty good eh? Now I can go to bed and rest easy.

LOL VERY Happy Soul.
