My protection programs are as follows

AVG anti-virus (free)- updated and run automatically, regularly

AdAware 2007- updated and run at least twice per week

SpyBot Search&Destroy- updated and run at least twice per week

Spyware Blaster 4.0 updated at least once per week

ZoneAlarm free firewall - always up to date

I have been very diligent with keeping these programs updated, I have Windows Vista up to date and only use FireFox unless I have to use IE. These are up to date also. I don't use Outlook, I use a third pa

I and my wife are the only ones that use this laptop. The only program that I can find that has she added is eBay Turbo Lister 2

The only sites I really go to are Bleepingcomputer.com, a Radio control toy message board, Comcast (for news, and email), eBay, and a Fishing/Hunting message board I do have Skype but only use it to chat with family. I think I am pretty safe in my surfing practices....

Sooooo............ What did I do wrong? What more could I do right?

That is actually having to do with my desktop, this is concerning my laptop, although I did post in the HJT thread after determining that I cannot remove this virus myself. Since I have a HJT on going with this laptop you can close this thread if you need to, but I would love to hear a little on this subject while I wait to be helped. I understand that I don't want to change anything or add any programs in the mean time (just counterproductive and confusing for the person trying to help you)

It may have come in from an email attachment or a sidelink at one of the sites.
Topic needs to be closed as per the rules tho.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
