Some ppl I've talked to about this say that PC-Cillin is the way to go. Does anybody here use that? I use Norton Internet Security 2005 myself btw.

Yea, its finding adaware.....justa trojan more than likely. There aint no way you actually have 249 viruses running around in your system and most of them probably are repeated, its just that it found it in mulitple places.
