Hi Guys,

Just ran a Full System Security/Anti Virus Scan. A program called Error Doctor that I did not knowingly or deliberately download was found lurking in my Registry and successfully quarantined.

Other than torrents, the only two items I've downloaded since the last Scan was uTorrent and Azureus, so I don't know where it came from unless I downloaded it so long ago I've forgotten about it - but I don't recall ever seeing it before the Scan found it.

If you want to check your computer it goes here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ErrorDoctor

and full details can be found here:

Take care guys and 'play safe',

3. eating too many chips wont make you into a FAT32).

You should never download Bittorent, or another P2P-searcher.
