    so your saying that the virus was probably already there just waiting for something or another program to activate it. like anit virus software.

    It is a possbility, but unlikely.

    With the security downloads, people can upload files. or at least you use to be able to. So what happened, was someone renamed a virus as a antivirus.

    Download AVG from that link I gave you and run it. Let us know what you find.

    can you get into safe mode?????

    but however we can't rule it out....
    my guess would be an internet worm but im downloading avg.exe to check it with my av.

    jazbo, do you keep your computer current on patches and do you have a firewall?
