    I use Housecall too. It is a good program. It helped me git rid of a trogan horse I had in my registry a while back. It was a annoying little thing that sent out E mails to spammers everytime I was online. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
    The more you use housecall the faster it works and it is updated with all the latest virus stuff

    I just used housecall last night and found 5 of the KLEZ worms. Got them deleted from the Symantec removal tool That Todd had let me know about.

    I'm still having trouble with a bunch of crap on my Yahoo e-mail account. I keep getting a bunch of stuff returned to me that I never sent in the first place. A bunch of virus warnings, too.

    Also, when ever I scroll the pages, the screen is very choppy going up or down. Doestn't scroll smoothly anymore. Even as I type this, the letters don't show up til I'm done typing.

    I tried scanning for viruses on my Norton and once I start it, about 4 oer 5 seconds later, I get a small window that says "no viruses detected in scan." This is total B.S. I got a different Norton disc today from a co-worker and downloaded it to find it do the exact same thing as my old Norton. Something is not right here and I don't know what to do. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
