What do you have to scan with? Spybot search and destroy, AVG, AdAware, Ewido...?

Most all of us around here use some if not all of the above, they're all free downloads.

I would ssuggest going into safe mode and run your scans in there, when you run scans in normal operation you occassionally get the access denied or can't access becuase..., running in the safe mode makes these more acceessable.

Here are instructions for getting into safe mode.

1. If the computer is running, shut down Windows, and then turn off the power.
2. Wait 30 seconds, and then turn the computer on.
3. When you see the black-and-white Starting Windows bar at the bottom of the screen, start tapping the F8 key. The Windows 2000 Advanced Options Menu appears.
4. Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected. In most cases, it is the first item in the list and is selected by default. (If it is not selected, use the arrow keys to select it.)
5. Press Enter. The computer will start in Safe mode. This can take a few minutes.
6. When you are finished with all troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hello patnya

I would also recommend that you download and scan with Sysclean Package.
1. Create a new folder on drive "C:\" ("C:\New Folder") and rename it Sysclean.
2. Place the sysclean.com inside that folder.
3. Then download the latest Virus Pattern Files (lptXXX.zip).
4. Extract the lptXXX.zip pattern file into the same folder you created for sysclean.com.
5. Close all open applications and DISABLE your current anti-virus software. Some anti-virus programs such as Avast will alert you to a virus attack when running sysclean so it's best to disable them first.
6. Reboot into "SAFE MODE".
7. Open the Sysclean folder and double-click on sysclean.com to run.
8. It will take some time to complete. Be patient and let it clean whatever it finds.
9. Exit when done and re-enable your anti-virus program.

Reboot normally and perform this online Virus scan:
