instruction on how to remove the spy-ware. As I went through the steps lots of times I was being directed to the registry and I am not all that computer savvy so I bailed on that option. I do want to thank those who emailed me with suggestions and websites as well. In the end I went out and purchased Norton 360 after looking at many reviews this seemed to be the one to do the trick........so I thought. I loaded the software and it did say it found a low level threat. The first time through I just ignored it but as I thought about it maybe the spy-ware wants to give the impression that it is low level. So I did the scan again removed the low level threat but still no luck the spy-ware was still there. I then call Norton to see what I could do I was told that because the PC was infected before the software was installed I could pay a small fee and have a tech take over my PC and remove the spy-ware. Let me clarify I was talking to an agent on my infected PC over the net....who then asked me for my credit card number to continue!!! Well I then called Norton on the toll free line and paid them and gave them access to my PC. To make a long story short he was able to repair the problem. My PC is up and running fine business now. I am told that Norton 360 will not protect my PC from a similar attack. Now if you are thinking that I was running my PC without any protection up to this point I was running AVG for antiviral and Spy-bot for malware. It's time to move on to bigger and better things......the ARRL CW DX contest!!!!!!!
