  1. I am getting extremely frustrated with this spyware crap. I've goten the same bloody thing 45 times. It wont let me open taskman, switch proggies, access websites, open antiviruses, access the start menu, access ANYTHING. And when I start up the comp into windows (GRUB Dual-Boot) After I log in it stays on the welcome screen for 2 minutes no HDD activity goes to just the background nothing else sits there for about 5 minutes the HDD makes movement and the windows chime finally sounds 5 minutes into the ordeal. And I Want to get rid of Norton. It says I must restart and other installation processes are running. I WIL NOT DO A FORMAT. And I have MS antispyware, Ad-Aware personal and Trend Micro but nothing works. This nis driving me insane and I need to know how to eliminate this thing. Oh and pressign the restart button and rebooting makes it go away - for 2 hours...

    It lets you start you pc from your knoppix cd not you hdd
    If correct it has scanners to scan your hdd
    you can find it on the web (Google) it's free.
