    boot your system in safe boot.
    turn off system restore.
    run your anti-virus with updates
    run spybot search & destroy
    run ewido
    run adaware
    run microsoft anti-trojan

    report back.

    i hope i did this right

    I ran avg there was 1 virus that was deleted. what bothered me about the scan is this at the very top of the scan it says : partial table MBR under results it says reading error and under status it says error then the next one down says. boot sector of disk c and under result is says reading error and under status it says error
    the virus was I-Worm/sober.CF that is in the vault now

    spybot search and destroy said Congradulations no immediate threats were found...........the microsoft one also said no errors
    and here is the logs for ewido and adaware Ill send those as attachments

    thanks for the help

    Bobbi

    ok, then rerun your anti-virus and spyware detectors. IF nothing comes up, you should be ok.

    make sure windows is updated also.
