I have McAfee VirusScan running on my computer.
I am worried because it has never found any infections and I know my PC is infected with a few things.

Since Im running on a Dial Up connection. Should I disable McAfee and try something else? if that something else detects stuff. shoud I remove mcafee?

also, has anyone else had this problem.

Many thanks,
Tarra

No one anti-virus application is infallable and it's always best to use a multi-layered approach to computer security. I occasionally do online scans as a backup to my main anti-virus. Housecall is a good one, although it's likely to be very slow for a dial-up connection.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

-Tarra-,

I see you have an open HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum.
You shouldn't make any changes to your system, while your HJT log is posted, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.
At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

I'm closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team.
If, after your log has been cleaned, you still need help, please PM a Moderator and we will re-open this topic.
