I figured I might as well let you know what's going on... My AVG Free is set up to run automatically, every morning. Yesterday I happened to see the computer while it was running and noticed it had found a threat. After checking the log, I see that it has found a threat every day since the middle of October (why wouldn't it have alerted me somehow?) So, I did the following: Turned off System Restore. Went through Add/Remove Programs and removed anything I didn't recognize (a few of these required a reboot). Updated all detection programs, then ran in order: Disk Clean Up CW Shredder Rogue Remover Ad Aware 2007 Free Spybot S&D AVG Anti Spyware AVG Anti Virus After all this, it still detected the threat. As I was looking the AVG results, I noticed that the program hadn't moved the threat into the virus vault. So I did it manually, then "wiped" it from the vault, restarted the computer in Safe Mode, and am re-running AVG Anti Virus. I'm hoping for the best and I'll keep you posted.
