    This was from a scan just tonight. I always download stuff from respectable sites and have a firewall and everything. I have had viruses in the past but this really suprises me

    As for the viruses, sounds like you got infected somehow and then system restore made a few backups... thats what you get for having a lame antivirus ;)

    The only way to get rid of the virii in System Volume Information folder is to disable restore.

    its worm_klez.b ...i got it a while ago...when kazaa still worked for me...it was a small file like "wolfenstein cd-key.exe". I can't remember why i downloaded it, because i aready have wolfenstein. So i opened it up and it would open multiplue prompt windows. I had to use msconfig and disable "explorer32". But that was...3 months ago. I remember i did an on-line sercurity check AND pc-cillian check and none of them reported anything until now. I think i'll go get norton...or macafee...wich is better?

    Great permanent solution to prevent spyware in the form of cookies.
    1)Tools>Internet Options>Privacy tab
    2)Click the Advanced button
    3)Check Override Automatic cookie handling.
    First Party cookies: Allow
    Third party cookies: Block
    Check Always allow session cookies.

    Haven't got any spyware after I set it up this way ... give it a try. :)

    By the look of your attachment, it looks like you are being spied upon quite frequently. Set your browser to accept first-party cookies and to block thridy-party cookies and tick the session cookies only button. That way, you have almost complete internet access without spy cookies.
