Hi all, name is Sam and I am a ham radio operator hence the user name. I may have a virus as my ZoneAlarm scan shows what it thinks to be a virus. I did a google search using their description and I found this site. I am hoping this possible virus is not to serious and can be eliminated without formatting the H/D. Anyway, I just wanted to get on this group and find out how to get started.
