i was surfing on the dark side and my virus software spotted a virus upon going to a new site and i put it in the lockbox. so went to delete the bookmark to the site and it wont go away. i also noticed that my modem lite blinks at least once every 3 seconds, like when you send an email. that was afew days ago and since then i have downloaded more virus cleaning software but they cant find it. i am using xp home but dont know what "aplication" i was using to help figure this out. any help would be apreciated. wonk

while reading other replys i ran ewido, which i had not updated in a few months, and it found 14 tracking objects and quarinteened them and the bookmark went away and my modem no longer is blinking. i was wondering why avast, ad-aware se, windows washer and mcafee antispy didnt find it ? or was it just a group effort that finally did it ? so thank you for the wealth of knowledge at this site and if i read up on more of the topics i can stop asking the kids for help with the computer.

It is a good idea to have multiple on-demand anti-spyware and anti-malware programs as one will find what the other will not. Each company has a different idea of what spyware is.

What security programs do you have installed?
