PC-Cillin is the best anti-virus software I have ever used... You can download it with 1 free update and it will run but no updates after that unless you purchase it.
That came with my mobo and vid divers. Been using it since my comp was built, and it's great.

Since I don't know anything about that particular A/V program, I couldn't answer. I've used Norton, Panda, PC-Cillin, AVG, and now Avast, but not the one you just downloaded so I was expecting the person who recommended it to answer you.

you can always use those scan-from-the-web programs but i think they are crappy
Some are actually very good considering they are run by Panda, Trend Micro (PC-Cillin), eTrust and I believe there is even one now where you can be scanned by 10 different companies all at the same time: http://virusscan.jotti.dhs.org/

IF you do managed to get reconnected to the internet, why not try that online scanner. Liz

I always choose "wipe infected file" because more often you find the virus is an .exe or .dll by itself
but I think it must have found a virus attached to a .dll somewhere in your case
have you got the install files for your browsers?

If you had KaZaa on there, I'm not surprised you ended you with this mess. Do this. Download HiJack This on your mac and copy it over to your other computer if you can and run it per the instructions in this thread: http://www.techist.com/showthread.php?threadid=34713 Then copy the log and get it back to your mac and copy it back over here to this forum: HiJack Logs (analyze)

A log reader will get your log read as quickly as possible and tell you how to get it fixed. Liz
