I just ran Panda Active Scan 2.0 and the Avista scan. The Avista scan stopped before completing, and so did the Panda. The Panda Scan showed 17 files infected and one file suspected at the 90% completion point then stopped scanning. I didn't get the results of the Avista scan because the scan screen and tab just disappeared after running for a while. After the Panda Scan stopped running I clicked on something from I believe the Panda Scan window to get to another window, and my computer froze so I had to shut off the power and then reboot. That's the first time this computer has frozen up. This is a new computer I just set up a week ago with a new XP Home o/s from an XP Home installation cd I bought directly from Microsoft. Right after installing the o/s I surfed around the Internet for a while before installing any firewall or scanner. I guess I could have been infected then. I have not received any warning pop-ups. I did these two scans because I want to copy data from an old hd that I used on my old computer. I had many o/s and virus problems on that computer, so I didn't want to transfer any of them to my new current hd. I believe the problems were detected from my new hd because the scanners were still scanning the new hard drive when the problems were detected. I installed the old hd right before doing the scans. I have the new hd set as the master and the old hd as the slave. I currently have Avista and Comodo installed and running.
