...ok, i don't remember having this, but...

under windows "problem reports and solutions", under "information about other problems", there is 1 called "virus alerts".

It says:
"Remove the W32/Gaobot.worm.gen.u - Win32/RBot.3eu!Worm from your computer

This problem [i don't know what problem they're referring to] was caused by W32/Gaobot.worm.gen.u - Win32/RBot.3eu!Worm, a known computer virus"

this probably happened in the past. so...

1) how do i 100% make sure it's off my computer?

2) so far, i don't THINK (think, still unsure) that it's still in my computer. but if it isn't then why do i have that "virus alert" thing under "information about other problems" under "problem reports and solutions"?

What program is alerting you to the infection?

Can you create a screenshot,, upload it to an image site such as Photobucket, Media Fire, TinyPic or ImageShack and provide a link to the url address back here?

To capture a screenshot, refer to:
