I am a senior citizen who cut his teeth learning Basic programing on a Commadore 64 shortly after they were introduced. Was put on a waiting list to get a second hard drive.

I currently use MS Office Professional suite of software plus a variety of other programs. I have a desktop and laptop that are networked through wireless. I use Norton Internet Security and SystemWorks.

I came across this web site while searching for help when my credit card was hijacked on the desktop. I have tried to clean the hard drive of the malware, but get conflicting reports from Yahoo! Anti-spy and PC Tools Spyware Doctor. I do do feel it is clean and have it disconneced from the internet. I hope that I can get the help I need on this forum. I have cleaned friend's PC's of viruses, but I am stuck on this one.

Remember when Commodore replaced the great tape drive with a foppy disk drive? I too, first learned to programme in Commodore Basic (peeks and pokes galore), and to do a lot with less than 64K memory.
I suggest you post a HJT log in the appropriate forum so a malware expert can take a look at it and spot any problem that remains. Follow the instructions below:
