I think the topic pretty much says it all. I've been battling SpySheriff almost 12 hours now (straight, havn't left my desk except for food and bathroom)

This has been a major strike at my business. I have confidential files that if they were accessed, would easily constitute international crimes (i'm from canada, i'm pretty sure the makers of spysheriff arn't)

anyway, i'm going to reboot again. if i was successfull this time and the virus doens't re-propogate when i reinstall, i'l be able to finally go to bed. either way i'l be talking to a guy who works here in town on international law on monday. fortunately i've got a business contact who went to school with the guy. But i thought i'd ask here incase anyone knew anything that could get me started.

Thanks.
