THANKS FOR YOUR RESPONSE!
I have Norton installed but in this case I used VCLEANER by AVG (Grisoft) just to see how it works. I went back to the site where it can be downloaded and it shows BISBY A-D as a Trojan that it will catch (on the DL page). Very interesting. As an aside, I have worked in THE BIZ--WORKED SOME for BUY.com. Working there I learned a lot about scammers etc. It has made me extremely suspicious!! You don't think a software vendor would purposely insert a little file in its free Anti-virus and then announce to you that it caught the virus and cleaned it out (and saved your dumb ass). The fact that they caught it and cleaned it without telling me about first made me wonder. I would liked to have looked at it myself. But, Grisoft s reputable and AVG seems to have been recommended by "US". If you may have noticed--it seems about half of all the TV adds are scare adds--IE. Get this or else!!!. I wonder if Grissoft uses such a technique to have its users of its free Software to upgrade to the the one that costs $. Also, I noted that they used DOS type data presentation to display what they did searching for the Viruses. This would be uninteruptable unless one knew (remembered in my case) DOS commands. Just ranting and raving, but I know you speed-read, otherwise you wouldn't be able to read all those HJT files--UNT-
