    Since my Norton is fawked up now and I don't know where the software is (think I loaned it out to someone), I used the www.housecall.com site for their free anti-virus scan. Turns out I've got 5 Klez worm viruses on my files and when I tried to delete them, it would not do it. Said something about not being able to delete them because they were "still in use." Hello! I know they are still in use because they are screwing my computer up! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    What do I need to do to get them off for good? I'm waiting for a co-worker to bring her Norton software from home tomorrow for me to download and then do another scan.

    Right now, the screen moves down with my cursor very slowly and choppy. Not smooth scrolling at all. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    HELP! I'm tired of this crap! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
