Make certain that your antivirus software is completely up to date
with the virus definitions not more than a week old and do a complete
virus scan of your computer. Then get a "second opinion" by doing a
free online virus scan at one of the following sites:

Next do a spyware check and cleanup by following MVP Jim Eshelman's
Spyware Quick Fix procedure at http://www.aumha.org/a/quickfix.htm


Good luck
