If you think you have a virus, run hijackthis and post a log, could aso use Stinger, AVG and Avast to scan.

Could also run a repair of windows or simple reformat and reinstall if its not a virus and it really bothers you.

i am thinking of reformatting and installing windows xp pro sp1, dont ask why...

i have been using ccleaner (crap cleaner)
and i have been doing constant scans using zone alarm internet security. It reports many viruses and spyware. I will install spybot, adaware, and hijackthis.

wouldn't a repair of windows keep your current viruses? Or make you lose windows updates?
