    Hey kids.

    I've got a buddy who has a computer, which is quite obviously infected with something. She says after she runs her norton antivirus, it just turns off (weird eh)

    Anyways, I was hoping I could send her a couple links to free virus scanners, hopefully good ones, and even the web-based ones. Anything and everything.


    Thanks.

    Certain viruses, such as Trojans, scripts, overwriting viruses, and joke programs which are identified as "uncleanable", should simply be deleted.
