Hi All,

I am on a WIN ME system . Inspite of all the regular precautions I have been taking , I do think I have a virus on board .

As soon as I open C:\ ;I get the following on the top left corner

%THISDIRNAME%

I have ran SpyBot,AdAware,a2 as also my McAfee but this seems to have become a permanent feature on my C directory for the last few days.

Pl help.

:thumbsup:

Hi tg ,

Tried both your links as well as many others thru ggogle.

All of them basically suggest running scanreg in the safe mode. Have already done so twice but no results.

Are the others listening. Shall highly appreciate any and all comments.

Hiya tg ,

Ran SpyBot & AdAware in safe mode. Next morning on booting found the problem disappeared.

Thanks for your help and suggestions. :thumbsup:
